2012 NBA Mock Draft: Denver Nuggets Projected To Take PF Arnett Moultrie By Chad Ford

The Denver Nuggets are known as one of the deepest teams in the NBA, and the No. 20 pick in the first round will only grant George Karl's team another opportunity to add a quality rotation player. The Nuggets hit gold last year with power forward Kenneth Faried, and ESPN's resident draftnik Chad Ford thinks Denver could go with another four-man this year.

In his seventh mock draft, Ford has the Nuggets selecting Mississippi State's Arnett Moultrie, a 6-foot-11, 223 lbs. 21-year old.

Says Ford:

Moultrie made the head-scratching decision to sit out the draft combine drills. He would've looked great in that setting, but instead saw several players leapfrog him on the draft board. I doubt he slips much past the Nuggets or Celtics, though.

His length, athletic ability and shooting touch should all come in handy in Denver. Kentucky point guard Marquis Teague is also an option here.
