2011 NBA Draft Results: Alec Burks Drafted By Utah Jazz At No. 12

After all the draft speculation, the mock drafts and the last-minute trades, Colorado Buffaloes guard Alec Burks went No. 12 overall to Alec Burks. This is the highest a Colorado Buffaloes player has been selected since Chauncey Billups went No. 3 overall in the 1997 draft. The last  time a CU player was selected was in 2004 when David Harrison went 29th overall to the Indiana Paces.

Burks had an embarrassing moment with the Jazz over the weekend when he didn't know the name of their head coach during a workout he had with them. 

With the Jazz, Burks can now work on becoming a shooter, as he is already a scorer. Defense will also be one area he needs to improve upon.

See our 2011 NBA Draft hub for full coverage of the draft, trades and the aftermath on Friday. Visit the Ralphie Report for more on Burks' career at CU and check out SLC Dunk for his new home.
