2012 NBA Mock Draft: Thomas Robinson To Hornets In Chad Ford's Latest

Thomas Robinson is going to be among the top players chosen in the 2012 NBA Draft. The only question is where exactly he will fall. As European players begin to work out and the sizzle of his showing in the celebrated tournament run for Kansas ends, Robinson might find himself falling just a bit farther than the No. 2-3 pick he was once projected to be. Lately, Chad Ford has him at No. 4 in his latest mock to the New Orleans Hornets.

Ford writes, "The Hornets need both size and a point guard. But since there isn’t really a point guard worthy of going this high in the draft, their choices are Robinson or Drummond. While Drummond might be the sexy pick here, Robinson is more of a sure thing and brings a toughness that the Hornets value."

Anthony Davis is the first overall selection while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Bradley Beal are No. 2 and 3.
