NBA Mock Draft 2011: Chad Ford Predictable, Has Tobias Harris To Nuggets In Latest Mock

The 2011 NBA Draft is only two days away and ESPN's Chad Ford has released a two-round mock draft ahead of the real thing. However, the Denver Nuggets don't have a second-round draft pick currently since it was sent to the Detroit Pistons back in 2009 in the trade for Arron Afflalo.

Following Ford's mock drafts each week, it has become apparent that he likes Tennessee forward Tobias Harris to the Nuggets at No. 22, and in this week's edition it doesn't change. Here's what Ford has to say about Harris:

Analysis: Harris may be one of the more underrated players in the draft. He can play both the 3 and 4, and he has a very high basketball IQ and an NBA body. Harris doesn't do any one thing at an elite level, but he is one of the most well-rounded players in the draft.

Iman Shumpert, Chandler Parsons and Tyler Honeycutt are other possibilities here.

Either Ford has some inside knowledge that he is disclosing or he he's conjecturing on everything here. Probably the latter, though we know some team is going to miss the layup when selecting and cause havoc down draft boards.
