A day after the 2011 NBA Draft Lottery, all of the experts are releasing their first official mock drafts.

ESPN's Chad Ford is widely regarded as one of the best in the business. He is the Mel Kiper Jr. of NBA mock drafts and has released his first official one.

I say first "official" one because he has been churning out mocks without even knowing the draft order for the past month already. But now we do, and we can get a much better grasp of where players will be going.

Ford himself puts the disclaimer up that the order is destined to change after the Chicago NBA pre-draft combine, the Reebok Eurocamp and tons of team workouts.

But who can wait a month?

I'll breakdown Ford's first draft and tell you if it's a good pick or bad pick for your favorite NBA team.
