Even after impressing at the NBA Combine with his measurables that answered any questions whether or not he was big enough to play power forward at the pro level, Thomas Robinson still can't climb any higher than No. 5 for Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports in the upcoming 2012 NBA Draft. In his latest mock, Goodman still has the Kansas forward going to the Sacramento Kings in the first round.
Goodman writes, "The Kings could use someone up front with DeMarcus Cousins. T-Rob is a relentless rebounder with a high-motor."
Anthony Davis is the first overall choice on the board, and Robinson is the second big man taken. However, Goodman has Bradley Beal, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Harrison Barnes all being taken before Robinson. If he falls to the Kings, a frontcourt with Cousins and Robinson could be very good very quickly. However, it's a lot farther than Robinson would likely want to fall considering his recent overtures of wanting to be No. 1 overall.
The NBA Draft will be held on June 28.
