Kendall Marshall over Damian

Kendall Marshall over Damian Lillard

Bradley Beal over Jeremy Lamb

Thomas Robinson over Andre Drummond

Jared Sullinger over Perry Jones

Austin Rivers over Jeremy Lamb

Marquis Teague over Tony Wroten

Terrence Jones over Perry Jones

Terrence Ross over Doron Lamb

Moe Harkless over Quincy Miller

John Jenkins over Dion Walters

Easiest decision- Bradley Beal over Jeremy Lamb, Beal does a little bit more of everything, especially rebounding for his size, and I just don't know about Lambs leadership and desire after last season, but that is just me

Hardest Moe Harkless over Quincy Miller, both are raw and have a high ceiling, just haven't watched enough of them to truly have a clear cut answer

My take

1) I'm a sucker for pure playmakers, and Marshall is arguably the best pure playmaker to come out of college in a looooong time. I'll go with Marshall, despite the fact that he can't shoot and is iffy on D

2) Beal. Lamb may end up being better, but Beal has a smoother J, stronger, better on D, and better at finishing in traffic than Lamb is.

3) Drummond. I like T Rob, and he has a higher floor. I'm a bit scared he'll bust out, but you have to take a chance on a guy like Drummond when he could end up being like a better defensive version of Amare.

4) Sullinger. Sullinger has the skillset to be a good player in the NBA. Jones could be better, but I'm too afraid of him busting- he has a better chance to bust than Drummond does.

5) Lamb- I think Rivers has the potential to be better, but he has a higher potential to be a team killer due to his constant need for the ball and looking for his own shots. Lamb, while not as talented at 1-1 ball, is a better team player, but can turn it on when he really wants to (look at the international games where he took over).

6) Honestly, neither. I don't think either of them are really ready for the NBA and really could have used at least another year in school. But as of today, I pick Teague, just because Wroten played his team out of games at times, whereas Teague did a decent job keeping his teammates happy.

7) Terrence Jones. As I said before, I worry most about PJIII busting in the NBA, and Terrence really turned it on for the tourney and played more consistently this year than last. There are still times when he'll disappear, but it wasn't as bad as last year.

8) Ross, if only for the reason that Ross is bigger and more capable of defending 2's at the pro level. I think Lamb has a good shot at being an instant-offense guy off the bench who can drain 3's, and would be a great role player, but Ross is capable of being a decent starter.

9) Miller, I think he's got a lot more long-term potential than Harkless. He really should have stayed another year at Baylor though, and I think that may make people question his decision making.

10) Depends what I'm looking for. Waiters has the killer mentality and mindset of a poor man's D-Wade, but he also is a worse playmaker for others and can be really trigger-happy/selfish when he has the ball. He's also undersized. Jenkins is kinda like Lamb in that he'll be a role playing outside shooter to knock down open shots. I'd probably take Waiters because he has more potential.

My Picks

Damian Lillard or Kendall Marshall.

My Pick is Marshall, in the NBA these days its alot more rare to find a nice pure playmaking PG, that isn't obsessed with scoring. Easily will find a spot on most NBA teams.

Bradley Beal or Jaremy Lamb.

I love Lamb, I'm very high on him and I belive hes going to use all of him potential. I don't thinks its going to be hard for him to score in the next level. Beal is the much safer pick, great shooter.

Andre Dummond or Thomas Robinson.

Heart goes a long way in the NBA, T-Robinson is a monster, gives it his all. I love the way he plays, NBA ready body.

Parrey Jones or Jared Sullinger.

Give me Perry Jones. I'm a sucker for Potential players. As far as his current progress, he is inconsistant and is a highlight player. Hopefully he gets a great mentor and a coach that can really get him consistant and play with more toughness.

Austin Rivers or Jaremy Lamb.

As I said above, I love Lamb. I'd take him over Rivers as a scorer.

Marcus Teague or Tony Worten.

Teague. Worten is uncontroled and trys to hard to play hero. Teague plays will a smooth style that I like and seems to have progressed pretty well and played well in March.

Terrence Jones or Parrey Jones.

Perry Jones is my pick here. ^ look at what I previously said. Terrence Jones is very underrated in this draft and is extremly versitile. I think theres many coaches out there that would love useing him offensivly. Mismatches, Kind of like Thad Young.

Terrence Ross or Doron Lamb.

Terrence Ross. Hes body is great for a SG, Lamb is kinda small, reminds me of Jodie Meeks. Ross and Lambs shooting is pretty equal however Ross can score in more ways. I think he will be alot better with a pure point guard unlike Wroten in Washington.

Moe Harkless or Qunicy Miller.

Quicy Miller, as you can tell I love potential players. Both have great bodys but need to add more Lbs's. Both need more time on there games, I don't expect them to get much playing time in there rookie seasons.

Dion Walters or John Jenkins.

Dion Waiters ^ not Walters haha. But I'd take Waiters, cambo gaurd that scores at will, has 6th man writting all over him. Jenkins will also be great in the NBA, pure stooting strook and plays hard, kinda see Kyle Kover in him.

Parrey Jones or Jared Sullinger

Austin Rivers or Jaremy Lamb

Marcus Teague or Tony Worten

Terrence Jones or Parrey Jones

Terrence Ross or Doron Lamb

Moe harkless or Qunicy Miller

Dion Walters or John Jenkins

Hardest selection: Parrey Jones or Jared Sullinger: Who the heck is Parrey?

Hardest selection (seriously): Moe harkless or Qunicy Miller: I'm going to live with the fact that I'll probably get negged just for this descion but I've always been high on Miller and even though I think he should've stayed in school I like him. Moe Harkless has had the better season but his inability to create his own shot annoys me when I see him play (which I have a few times). Although Miller's D could have some improvement I took him because of his higher ceiling.

Easiest Selection: Austin Rivers or Jaremy Lamb: Both have high potenial and great games but what sticks out to me when I watch Duke is Rivers selfishness with the ball in hand. I really don't see how he could ever have been expected to be a PG. Also, the one thing I hate more then the above is a guy who doesn't pull his weight on the defencive end. Sorry, but this one goes to Lamb (even though Beal over Lamb was the second easiest).

Sullinger's gonna be a solid,

Sullinger's gonna be a solid, solid player in the league. He's a guy that knows his role and plays to his strengths. He's developing into a stretch 4 that will be effective on the glass and be able to shoot the 15-17 foot jumper consistently and hopefully develop range out to the 3 pt line. Probably won't ever be anall-star, but a servicible NBA player and a guy who will be around for the next 8-12 years. Hopefully he doesn't turn out like Sean May.

Can somebody actually mock a center for Atlanta

I've looked at every mock draft on over 100 different sites from Bleacher report to Hoopshype when can someone see that adding small forwards or undersized power forwards won't cut it. Looking at the Hawks their best rebounder is their small forwards Josh Smith. Can someone please mock Fab Melo to them. Makes no sense that a team can't win a series if they don't have big men. Jason collins and Erick Dampier do not count. Zaza Pachulia is decent, Horford is great , but he's a power forward. The biggest need is a center. This team has been about ^'9 for 7 years now a legit defensive center is what they need most. Moe Harkless isn't bad, but this team doesn't need any more small forwards they need a big man asap.

Most mocks wouldn't have

Most mocks wouldn't have factored in actual team yet though because the lottery hasn't been completed.
