Ford: Blazers Take Beal, Zeller In NBA Mock Draft 1.0

578
Chad Ford of ESPN.com has the Portland Trail Blazers taking Florida's Bradley Beal with the New Jersey Nets' pick at #4 and UNC's Tyler Zeller with their own pick at #11 in his Mock Draft 1.0. ------------------------- #4 (via NJ) - Bradley Beal: Beal hasn't had a domiant freshman season, but his scoring ability in the backcourt would help the Blazers get over the loss of Brandon Roy a little sooner. #11 - Tyler Zeller: If the Blazers can land Beal with their first pick, they would likely look to fill their holes at center or point guard. In a weak point guard draft, their two available options here would be Kendall Marshall and Tony Wroten Jr. While both have strengths, I think the Blazers would go big and take Zeller. He's not going to be a star, but he runs the floor like a guard and has gotten better every year. ------------------------- ed: bumped to front page
