The 2012 NBA Draft is just about here, and everyone is pushing out their final mock drafts just before it all gets underway. SB Nation's Tom Ziller released his latest mock, and there's few surprises. What he does acknowledge early on is the fact that the mock draft will almost assuredly fall apart once the Charlotte Bobcats come up to pick at No. 2.
While we have a consensus on the No. 1 overall pick in Anthony Davis to the New Orleans Hornets, everything gets decidedly fuzzy after that point. With the Detroit Pistons picking all the way at No. 9 overall, it's anybody's guess as to who will be available. Still, Ziller does his best with the selection of Andre Drummond.
Drummond is a player that has been mocked to Detroit plenty of times, but many mocks have started to have him go before the Pistons actually get up to draft. He's an excellent player with not a lot of time played, so he is kind of all over the place, but the consensus now seems to be that the Pistons might be picking too late to acquire him. That being said, it is nice to see that there's a consensus on the fact that Detroit would take him if he's there.
