NBA Draft 2011, Nets: Mock Draft Roundup

Now that we are counting down the minutes until the 2011 NBA Draft, it's time to take a look at the final Mock Draft predictions from around the web.  Almost everyone covering this draft -- myself included -- sees this first round as being one of the most difficult to project after the first two picks.

Assuming that the New Jersey Nets do not move up in the first round -- not a good assumption at this point -- here are the players projected to get the call from GM Billy King on Thursday night.

Chad Ford, ESPN: Reggie Jackson, PG, Boston College

New York Daily News: Kyle Singler, SF, Duke

New York Post: Nolan Smith, PG, Duke Davis Bertans, SF, Latvia Chandler Parsons, SF, Florida

SBNation: Jimmy Butler, SF, Marquette

HoopsHype: Davis Bertans, SF, Latvia

NESN: Tyler Honeycutt, SF, UCLA

There are a few names that didn't make the final cut despite being connected with the Nets from the beginning of the draft process.  Richmond's Justin Harper and Georgia Tech's Iman Shumpert are the two that jump out the most.  In Shumpert's case, it has more to do with his rising stock.  If King has decided they want Shumpert in his backcourt, he's going to need to trade up to get him.
