On the eve of the 2010 Draft, the consensus was that the Nets would take Derrick Favors and Jordan Crawford in the first round. That's actually how it turned out: Favors went at #3, where the Nets had their own pick, and Crawford went at #27, at the Mavs pick, then was traded along with #31 to Atlanta for Damion James.
This season's mocks, no matter how well intentioned, have been a mess, with some players 15 or 20 places apart in various mocks. Now, things are just starting to straighten out after the Pre-Draft Combine, but not for the Nets. A NetsDaily survey of the latest updates to the top nine mocks shows only two players, Kyle Singler of Duke and Tyler Honeycutt, a 6'8" swingman out of UCLA, on more than one one..
Some of the other names mentioned by one mock or another have been jumping in and out of the Nets boxes: Justin Harper, the 6'10" SF/PF out of Richmond; Davis Bertans, the 6'10" SF out of Latvia; Malcolm Lee, a 6'5" point guard out of UCLA. One thing seems certain: fan favorite Marshon Brooks is the fastest mover on the boards, with one mock putting him as high as #17...to the Knicks.
