NBA Draft: 2012 Mock Draft Round-Up

New, comments

With the 2012 NBA Draft just days away, there is still plenty of mystery surrounding who the Cavaliers will draft with the 4th pick. We can give you our best guesses, but that's pretty much all they would be -- guesses. So you know what's better than one guess? A whole bunch of guesses. For your convenience, I've compiled lots of mock drafts so you can see who various writers, reporters, and experts expect the Cavaliers to draft. Below are the first round picks but if you click on the links, you can usually see the 2nd round picks as well.

That's what I've got so far. I'll update this as we see more and more get published. If you find one that you think should be on the list, let me know.

It's pretty interesting that there are currently zero mock drafts out there that have the Cavaliers getting Bradley Beal with the #4 pick. That seems to just support the notion that if the Cavaliers want to get Beal, they'll need to move up to the #2 pick.
