NBA Mock Draft 2012: Thomas Robinson Falls To Sacramento Kings At No. 5 Per Chad Ford's Latest

The latest mock drafts are all coming out this morning since the NBA Draft Lottery was last night. The order is finally set and now it's clear where some players might fall. For Chad Ford, he believes that Thomas Robinson will fall a bit in the lottery after putting him higher in previous editions.

In his latest mock, Ford has Robinson falling to the Sacramento Kings at No. 5. Robinson has been listed as high as No. 2 right after Anthony Davis to the Hornets. However, it's a deep draft this year and there are several players vying for those 2-4 spots and guard play could be the deciding factor.

Ford writes, "The Kings, if they keep the pick, will likely try to add some athleticism, size and toughness to their front line. [Andre] Drummond is bigger and is an elite athlete, but Thomas Robinson is also an explosive athlete and has actually produced. More importantly, Robinson is a winner. He could help Sacramento turn around the team's culture.

Robinson is competing with Drummond, the center from UConn, as the best big man after Davis and it just depends on what a team needs more. No matter where he goes, Robinson will definitely add an impressive all-around athlete up front for any team that takes him.
