With the college basketball season now in full swing, we get a better idea of which players project for the 2011 NBA Draft. Team needs have not been taken into account with this mock draft.  Click on the players’ name for a complete scouting report.  Check out a 2012 NBA Mock Draft.

31. Houston (from LAC)- New Jersey- Jacob Pullen, PG, Kansas State, 6-0, Sr.
The kid can flat out score the basketball as he proved last season.  He will slide back to the point guard spot for the Wildcats this year and if he can effectively make that transition should be a first round prospect.
Think: Eddie House

32. Miami (from MIN)- Bojan Bogdanovich, G/F, 6-7, 1989
A sharp-shooter who has improved his all-around offensive game.

33. Sacramento- Kalin Lucas, PG, Michigan State, 6-0, Sr.
He knows how to run a team but doesn’t excel in any other area.

34. Philadelphia- Keith Benson, C, Oakland, 6-11, Sr.
An athletic, lengthy big man who needs to get stronger to be a factor at the next level.

35. L.A. Clippers (from Hou)- Jeremy Tyler, PF, USA, 6-10, 1991

Tyler suffered a Brandon Jennings-like growing experience in Israel after skipping his senior year of high school to play professionally overseas, but is still talented and loaded with potential.

36. Washington- Corey Fisher, PG, Villanova, 5-11, Sr.
I love Fisher’s tenacity at attacking the basket and toughness, but he needs to improve his decision-making as a point guard.  There is no questioning his ability to score the basketball but can he be a true NBA point guard will be the question.
Think: Sebastian Telfair

37. L.A.Clippers (from Det)- Pablo Aguilar, F, Spain, 6-10, 1989
A solid shooter, Aguilar sees steady playing time in a very competitive Spanish league which is odd for a player his age.

38. New Jersey- Nolan Smith, G, Duke, 6-3, Sr.

Is he a point guard or an under-sized two?  That will be the biggest question regarding Smith’s hope of making it in the NBA.

39. Detroit (from Tor)- Robin Benzing, F, Germany, 6-10, 1989
A typical European forward, Benzing is versatile and athletic but still a work in progress.

40. Charlotte- Steven Gray, SG, Gonzaga, 6-5, Sr.
Gray has a nice combination of size, athleticism, and ability to shoot the rock.

41. Sacramento (from Mil)- Ravern Johnson, G/F, Mississippi State, 6-7, Sr.
A smooth shooter from the outside, Johnson is incredibly thin which could hurt his prospects for the next level.

42. Golden State- Jamine Peterson, F, Greece, 6-6, 1988
The former Providence Friar will spend a year playing professionally in Greece and then likely enter the draft.  He is built like a house but does not have a true position in the NBA.

43. Memphis- Chandler Parsons, SF, Florida, 6-9, Sr.
Hasn’t overwhelmed anyone during his time in Gainesville, but has a solid combination of athleticism and ability to shoot the rock.

44. Chicago (from PHX)- Malcolm Delaney, PG, Virginia Tech, 6-3, Sr.
Delany is more of a scorer than a true point guard who thrives off the bounce.

45. Cleveland- David Lighty, G/F, Ohio State, 6-5, Sr.
The perfect example of a glue guy who does a little bit of everything on the floor to help his team win.

46. Portland- Durrell Summers, SG, Michigan State, 6-4, Sr.
If the Summers who showed up in the NCAA Tournament can carry over that same play during next season, he could get first-round looks.  He is a great athlete and displayed his ability to knock down perimeter jumpers during Sparty’s run to the Final Four.

47. L.A. Lakers (from NY)- Antoine Diot, PG, France, 6-4, 1989

Diot really stepped onto the radar after a great season in France and has steadily improved his overall game.

48. L.A. Lakers (from Mia)- Anatoly Bose, G/F, Nichols State, 6-6, Sr.
He briefly tested the waters, but wisely chose to return to school for his senior season.

49. Indiana– Gary Flowers, SF, 6-8, Southern Miss, Sr.
Another player to keep an eye on this season, Flowers has flown under the radar but will play for a Golden Eagle team that should contend in Conference USA.

50. Milwaukee (from Chi)- Herb Pope, PF, Seton Hall, 6-8, Jr.

An under-sized power forward who is a force on the glass and can also knock down shots from the perimeter, health concerns might be an issue with Pope.

51. Atlanta- Chris Wright, SF, Dayton, 6-8, Sr.

He has great strength and can leap out of the gym, but Wright’s lack of an outside shot hurts his stock.

52. Detroit (from Den)- LaceDarius Dunn, SG, Baylor, 6-4, Sr.
A tremendous natural scorer, Dunn also brings a level of physicality to the two guard.  The question is how his recent off-the-court issue might create red flags about his character.

53. Oklahoma City- Chris Wright, PG, Georgetown, 6-2, Sr.

Wright is a very physical point guard who can shoot the three and has surprising athleticism.

54. New Orleans- Rick Jackson, PF, Syracuse, 6-9, Sr.
A physical presence down the low, Jackson has a great feel around the hoop.

55. L.A. Lakers- Lavoy Allen, PF, Temple, 6-9, Sr.
Allen is more of a physical presence in the post and not very talented on the offensive end.  He could be an energy type of role player in the NBA.

56. Utah- D.J. Kennedy, SF, St. John’s, 6-7, Sr.
A versatile wing player, Kennedy is more of a slasher who also gets after it on the defensive end.

57. Boston- Austin Freeman, SG, Georgetown, 6-4, Sr.
Freeman can take over a game from the outside but is not incredibly athletic.

58. Dallas- Jeremy Hazell, SG, Seton Hall, 6-5, Sr.

A natural scorer in every aspect on the offensive end but tends to be a chucker.

59. Orlando- Xavier Silas, SG, Northern Illinois, 6-5, Sr.

The Colorado transfer is a talented scorer in a lesser league but needs to work on his attack game.

60. San Antonio- E’Twaun Moore, G, Purdue, 6-4, Sr.

Moore is a combo guard with a smooth stroke and good quickness off the bounce.
