2011 NBA Mock Draft expert Chad Ford has just come out with his latest mock, Version 1.1, after Kentucky forward Terrence Jones opted to stay in school reportedly because of a potential NBA lock-out, the Oregonian reports.

You'll see a good influx of foreign talent in the lottery picks, as well as the obvious American prospects, Kyrie Irving of Duke and Derrick Williams of Arizona.

Despite Kentucky point guard Brandon Knight having an up-and-down freshman season, Ford has him inside the top 10.

NCAA Tournament hero Kemba Walker of Connecticut is placed in the top five.

People seem divided whether guards Alec Burks of Colorado or Jimmer Fredette of BYU should be selected earlier in the draft. Fredette was the nation's leading scorer last season, but Burks has more athleticism.

Throughout the day, I'll be checking in on Ford's picks and giving you my take on whether they make sense and are a good fit.

So follow along, NBA fans, and feel free to give your two cents, as well.
