Chad Ford's Updated NBA Mock Draft: The Brooklyn Nets pass on Dieng, select...

Well, just like that Chad Ford has changed his latest mock drafted and instead of taking Louisville big man Gorgui Dieng, he has them taking German point guard Dennis Schroeder.

From Ford:

Updated 1:00 PM EST: Schroeder moved up to No. 22 from 23. Analysis:
The Nets have been looking for a backup point guard for a while, and if Schroeder falls to them, expect them to snatch him up. He's a bit raw, but his length and athleticism are alluring. Big man Gorgui Dieng is also a possibility here.

I have a feeling we're going to get another update between now and the draft, but...

The skinny on Schroeder:

  • Super quick guard
  • Great speed in the open court
  • Huge wingspan for a PG
  • Excellent ball handler
  • Lethal penetrator
  • Aggressive attacking the basket
  • Solid passer off penetration

However...

  • Needs to add strength
  • Basketball IQ could use improvement
  • More of a scoring than passing PG

What this means for Tyshawn Taylor, well, that remains to be seen.

Again, we'll update as we learn mote.
