I decided to look across the various mock drafts to see who the Blazers would reasonably have a chance at if they stay at their current positions. With nine mock drafts (including all of the ones referenced here, plus a few others). The end result? Don't count on getting Andre Drummond (or Kidd-Gilchrist, or Robinson); they, along with the obvious Anthony Davis, were gone before the six spot in every mock draft (the one who had us picking him has been updated).
More details and the full lottery chart below the jump.
Not surprisingly, everyone has Anthony Davis at #1. After that, there is basically a four-way tie for number 2 between the players mentioned above and Bradley Beal (although two drafts have him sliding to 6th). Harrison Barnes is the near consensus sixth, but various mock drafts have the blazers grabbing someone else who better fits a need (Henson, Lillard and Rivers). After that there is, well, not so much consensus. Assuming CW is right, this suggests that keeping the 6 pick vs. 7 could be important (and trading up even to 5 might be hard). Anyway, here is the full chart for your viewing enjoyment:
