Mannix: Blazers Take Indiana's Cody Zeller In Latest Mock Draft

USA TODAY Sports

One national writer has the Portland Trail Blazers selecting Indiana's Cody Zeller in his latest mock draft.

Chris Mannix of SI.com has the Portland Trail Blazers selecting Indiana's Cody Zeller with the No. 10 pick in his latest 2013 NBA mock Draft.

Zeller picked up some momentum from the combine, and it's unlikely he will slip out of the top 10. Teams still want to see how advanced his perimeter game is in workouts, but his tremendous athleticism and productivity in college are impressive. The Blazers are set at power forward, but with the dwindling number of power centers in the NBA, a Zeller-LaMarcus Aldridge frontcourt would have enormous offensive potential.

Mannix previously had the Blazers picking Maryland center Alex Len.
