    3&D who can pass? Getting one of those in this weak draft would be amazing

    Highest floor Knecht. His D may suck his entire career but the jumper will play today. Who knows if the other 3 someday develop a single skill as valuable? btw, I see his size as more SG then SF.

    Highest ceiling Ware. Factoring in size/position, Kel'el is the best athlete in this draft. Heck, despite being 40 pounds heavier then Cody Williams, his raw run/jump combine measurements were better. Has good mechanics on his jumper and found success with it last year. IF he's right between the ears dude should develop into a solid starter but could be much better then that.

    I'm not sure how that translates to a misleading height. He showed a 8'11 standing reach which is respectable length for a SF.

    And a low usage one at that. Bball fit wise, I don't see anyone better for this team than ZR.

    Agree about Ware, and I have seen a couple articles saying teams are not concerned with his motor.

    Pretty sure that he will be available at 14, but could be wrong. Would really like one of the wing players before Edey. If Edey is gone at 14, take Ware.

    Blazers fans select Tidjane Salaun at No. 7
    The first six picks of the fan mock draft go fairly chalk. Dalton Knecht at No. 6 (Charlotte) might be a bit of a reach based on the draft predictor model, but it's an understandable pick. But Blazers fans start the surprises by taking Tidjane Salaun at No. 7. The model gives this pick a 5% chance of happening with seven other players more likely than Salaun to go at this spot.

    What's DeAndre, chopped liver? I guess that would teach him not to set good picks...

    I mean, if we didn't get Zach-Edey-with-a-personality in Boban, why would we get the boring version?

    Edey would be a very nice pick with our first selection.... in the second round.

    I'd be fine with that. I'm also fine with the massive swings.

    Next year is the draft to go get another superstar, so this is the draft to grab some role players/starters, but I don't think Knecht and Edey would elevate us enough to really matter in the draft standings.

    I am not as down on Edey as some fans but if the Blazers took him at 7 --- well Cronin would prove he is even dumber then I thought and that would be something since I do not think very much of him to begin with at least as the GM.

    We will be the laughing stock if we take Edey in the first round.

    Well I like Stephon Castle but he will probably be gone early. I would settle for the following and is a possibility to happen. I would do whatever it takes to get Donovan Clingan at seven. I don't like Cody Williams. Watched him play and he looks like a bust to me. At number seven he is a huge mistake. At 14 if still there i really like Ja'Kobe Walter. He was impressive to me watching him play and I think he would be a great shooting guard. Most value in these players at our draft positions in the first round. Look for a wing in the second round.

    You mean mid-lottery? I think he's pretty solidly a first rounder at this point.
