Draft Prospects at 27

Three guys I'd love the Nets to target at 27 (assuming we don't move up in the draft at all).  We've heard plenty about Brooks, Lee, Harris, Harper, etc.  And I like these next three better than ALL of them.

1) Jeremy Tyler

I don't know that much about this kid... but I haven't really seen him mentioned on NetsDaily at all.  He's a monster (size-wise).  6'10", 262 lbs.  7'5" wingspan.  34 inch vert.  He has close to the same lane agility and sprint speeds as Favors.  The bad news - he came into the combine at around 13% body fat, and there are a lot of maturity questions.  But at one point, before going to Israel, he was projected to be a top 5 pick in the draft.  I'd gladly risk a late first round pick on someone with this SIZE.  I think he would come in and immediately be more aggressive than Favors.

2) Josh Selby

We've talked about him plenty.  I think the Nets need someone with this mentality.  Scoring ability, pure and simple.  Athletic, can play the 2.  Another top 10 prospect who experienced a fall-from-grace.  I think he'll be 10x the player he was in college once he's in the NBA.

3) Tyler Honeycutt

He's just thin as a rail.  But he has a big wingspan and could turn into a really, really good defender.  I think his shooting will also improve, as he already has a knack for scoring.

As you can probably tell... I want to take a chance on Jeremy Tyler.  But I'd be happy with a lot of guys this year, really.  I'm actually more excited for this year than last year.  We all knew it was Favors/Cousins... and I never really had a doubt in my mind it would be Derrick.

I think Tyler looks AS good as Favors did from highlights... and he appears more aggressive.  I think he's made some terrible decisions thus far in his short career, but he could be high risk/high reward.
