2012 NBA Mock Draft: PG Damian Lillard Goes To Portland At No. 6 In New Mock

NBADraft.net has long been a go-to website for draftniks, and the site's latest mock draft has Weber State point guard Damian Lillard going No. 6 to the Portland Trail Blazers. This shouldn't come as a surprise. Lillard was said to have a legendary open gym workout in Portland, and this is far from the first mock draft pegging the point guard to the Trail Blazers at No. 6.

Portland's decision would seem to come down to Lillard and UConn big man Andre Drummond. Drummond is thought to have more upside due to the jarring athleticism he possesses for a 7-footer. However, Drummond also has serious motor issues which contributed to an underwhelming freshman year for the Huskies. The Blazers also hold the No. 11 pick, and are expected to come away with a point guard and big man when the first round ends.
