  1. Very nice list overall, Ryan. I feel Lawson could “fall” to the tail end of the lottery, but I think he’ll probably end up closer to No. 10. This is the first mock I’ve seen put Toney Douglas in the first round *or anywhere near it, for that matter). I think he’s a first round talent, but will an NBA GM?

  2. Ryne – True, Toney hasn’t been ranked this high in other mock drafts but I feel he brings a lot of intangibles that are being overlooked. It’s because of this that I think he has a lot of Michael Redd in him and some team like the Spurs will take the senior in the first round.
