Those mocks are so often very, very wrong—and all over the place. Every year we talk here about players that the mocks were dead wrong about.
If you believe Butler is the best player/fit at 15 you take him and don’t look back.
Absolutely! & anyway, if you're going to pick someone based on the mock drafts, first you'll have to pick which mock draft to rely on!
The main use of the mock drafts is to be stimulated to look at some players you might have overlooked. Once you have some names to investigate, you start by looking at their college numbers. There are no good NBA players who put up bad numbers in college. Period.
Having done that you can start the real research.
WE AREN'T REAL GMS!!!
And we use mocks to get a feel for where others think players will go.
We do that because... all together now... WE AREN'T REAL GMS!
HOF !!! Absolute classic post! Too funny.
