2011 NBA Mock Draft: Washington Wizards Select Kenneth Faried with 18th Pick
Weight: 225 lbs.
Comparison: Paul Millsap/Louis Amundson
He may be undersized, but he has everything else that a great rebounder needs (work ethic, wingspan, explosiveness).
He led the nation in rebounding at nearly 15 a game (after averaging 13 in each of the last two years).
He should follow the example of Paul Millsap and work hard on every aspect of his offensive game.
Add Faried to Washington's first pick of Kawhi Leonard and the core they already have in place with John Wall, Nick Young and JaVale McGee, and this team could be in the playoffs real soon.
