Is it way too early to be thinking about the 2012 NBA draft? Absolutely, but that should by no means stop you from looking through one of the first 2012 NBA mock drafts out there.
This mock is dominated by incoming freshman who will have to prove that they belong at their respective schools. But with James McAdoo, Anthony Davis, Marquis Teague, Myck Kabongo, Austin Rivers, Michael Gilchrist and more, there is no shortage of talent there.
Then there's the group of surefire lottery picks who returned for another year in school: Harrison Barnes, Perry Jones, Jared Sullinger and Terrence Jones.
Now add to those the rest of the ever-improving field of college basketball players.
Basically, this draft class is going to be just as strong as the last one was weak. I'm not even sure if Kyrie Irving and Derrick Williams would both be top 10 picks next year.
And that makes this awfully fun to look at. Read on and enjoy!
