Who will the Blazers draft?
With the 2012 NBA draft right around the corner, CBSSports senior college basketball writer Jeff Goodman joined the Bald Faced Truth with John Canzano. Goodman talked about possible Blazer draftees.
With the "Who will the Blazers draft?" question looming around Portland, Goodman helped break it down for Blazer fans on the show. The way Goodman talks makes it seem as though Andre Drummond or Damien Lillard are very likely candidates to be selected at sixth spot for the Blazers. Goodman raves about the shooting ability of the not so well known Lillard, while he also compares Drummond to a best case scenario Dwight Howard type of big man.
There seems to only be one Franchise changing player on the board in this years draft (that being Anthony Davis), but Goodman explains how there are many potential All-Stars in this years supposedly deep field. Bradly Beal could mesh into a Joe Johnson type of talent. While former Illinois seven footer Meyers Leonard seems to be creeping up everybody's Mock draft board. Experts say Leonard could very well be a diamond in the rough. With all that said, Blazer Fans will be sentenced to waiting until next weeks draft to see what direction the franchise will be headed.
