NBA Mock Draft 2012: Tyshawn Taylor, Jeff Withey Projected As Second Round Selections

Even after an incredible NCAA Tournament run that featured wins over several favored opponents like Ohio State and North Carolina, some Kansas Jayhawk players who could be considered first round talents are still coming out in the second round in the latest mock draft from NBADraft.net. Tyshawn Taylor and Jeff Withey both have pro potential at point guard and center respectively but apparently their pro stock hasn’t risen high enough to warrant a high selection just yet.

That all can change as the Jayhawk players will go through various workouts and pre-draft camps to change their draft stock. Certainly Withey should be celebrated for his incredible shot blocking skills. The NBA can’t get enough big men and Withey should be able to find a home in the first round for sure. Taylor will have to fight off the perception that he’s turnover prone. He did just that as the KU’s season wore on, but the NBA game is another level entirely.

NBA Mock Draft 2012: Thomas Robinson Goes To New Orleans Hornets At No. 3

Fresh off of a strong showing in the 2012 NCAA Tournament that culminated in a loss in the national title game, Kansas Jayhawks star forward Thomas Robinson is also enjoying some rising stock in various mocks for the upcoming 2012 NBA Draft. Robinson is currently projected as the No. 3 overall pick in the latest from NBADraft.net, heading to the New Orleans Hornets in the process.

Robinson comes right after a pair of Kentucky Wildcats teammates, the very team who beat Robinson’s Jayhawks in the final game on Monday. Anthony Davis is widely considered to be the top overall selection with Kentucky guard Marcus Kidd-Gilchrist at No. 2.

Robinson was a unanimous All-American selection for the 2011-12 season with averages of 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds per game. He also averaged .9 blocks per game. All three were career high averages after three seasons at KU. He finished Monday’s title game with 18 points and 17 rebounds in the losing effort.
