Here is an update of our survey of the eighteen mock drafts published since Saturday. The list below shows all the players that at least one mock draft projects will be selected somewhere in the first round. When a player was not mentioned in a particular draft, I assigned a value of "35."
The eighteen mocks used were: Draft Express, NBADraft.net, FOX Sports, Rotoworld, RealGM, Collegehoops.net, MSNBC, About.com, the four mocks listed on Hoopsworld, SI.com, and ESPN Insider (Chad Ford). The remaining mocks were published by newspapers, including those by local beat writers Dave D'Alessandro (Star-Ledger) and Al Iannazzone (Bergen Record). In addition, we included mock drafts released by SF Gate and AZ Central. These are each of the recent mocks listed on the NetsDaily Mock Draft page with the exception of the one found on Hoopshype, which was penned by the president of DraftExpress and therefore may be repetitive. The picks predicted for the Nets by these sources can be found by clicking on the link to the NetsDaily Mock Draft Roundup.
The top 15 players stay the same as in the first mock survey, but the order is slightly different. It's interesting to note that Tyrus Thomas received the highest ranking but did receive a single #1 projection. Also, Redick's standard deviation is rising as he is projected to be selected anywhere between #8 and #25. Nearly all the picks that fall between #18 and #29 in this average of the mocks have very high standard deviations, and any of them could be selected in the teens--or not at all--without much surprise.
