2010 NBA Mock Draft (Lottery Picks) – Never to Early to Predict
My predictions of the lottery picks in the 2010 NBA Draft. We have all heard of how the 2009 NBA draft contained a plethora of point guards, well the 2010 draft is predicted to have an abundance of quality big men.

With the 2009 NBA Draft all said and done, It’s time for basketball enthusiests to start creating mock drafts for the 2010 Draft. This well be a great draft considering the great high scchool talent.
1. John Wall – 6-4 ft – PG
Wall has tremendous size, strength, speed, and athleticism. Reminds scouts of Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo but with even more size and strength. Has amazing potential to be even an all-star and more at the NBA level. Possess great instincts and is a force on defence with his extremely long arms. His shooting form is descent, so he has a great chance of developing a respectable midrange game.
2. Ed Davis – 6-9 ft – PF
Roy Williams has promised to move him into the starting line-up for him to receive more minutes. From what we have seen so far he is reminiscent of Blake Griffin considering his hard work ethic.
3. Donatas Motiejunas – 7-0 ft- PF
Will most likely be the most top overseas player in the 2010 draft. This lefty has size and finesse that reminds scouts of Dirk Nowitzki. Has inside/outside ability on both defence and offence but just needs to polish his perimeter moves and add upper body strength.
4. Derrick Favors- 6-9 ft – PF
Derrick has the skills to play both forward positions but need polishing on his perimeter skills. Very comparable to Blake Griffin in terms of body type although, Favors could use 15-20 pounds to fill up his frame.
5. Al-Farouq Aminu – 6-8 ft – SF
With Teague and Johnson gone, Aminu will become the go-to guy in Wake Forest. He has all the tools to be a great sf at the next level but still has mechanical problems in his mid-range and three point game. He is already a great defender due to his speed and athleticism so that should translate into the level.
6. Cole Aldrich – 6-11 ft – C
Would have likely been a lottery pick in 2009 but he made a good decision to return. Although he has the length and athleticism, he is very raw and limited offensively.
7. Willie Warren – 6-3 ft – PG/SG
Considered to be a combo guard, Warren will likely play the point at the NBA level. Has great attributes to be a great point guard but he certainly lacks the play making ability from what he has shown. As he matures he will become less selfish and less turnover prone.
8. John Henson – 6-10 ft – PF
Very long and athletic but he desperately needs more weight as his frame reminds scouts of Kevin Durant. Great potential but he is very raw coming out of high school.
9. Evan Turner – 6-7 ft – SG
Very versatile player with a great all around game. Can handle, pass, and shoot the ball with ease. He can create shots but sometimes he causes turnovers by over dribbling.
10. Greg Monroe – 6-11 ft – PF
Reminds scouts of Pau Gasol with his blend of size and touch. He will likely have to improve his ball handling and develop his right hand to create mis-matches at the next level.
