Lillard was ultra productive in his four seasons for the Wildcats in the lowly Big Sky. Drummond was seen as a major talent who underachieved in his lone season in the Big East. We will finally find out who Portland who pick on Thursday when the draft gets underway. Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports sees the Blazers going with the point guard.

Lillard has blown everyone away at the combine and in workouts. He's a big-time shooter who can step in and play the point for Portland. Also, the Blazers can still get a front court guy at No. 11.

As Goodman notes, the Blazers also hold the No. 11 pick in the first round. Lillard was said to have the best workout in Portland since Kevin Durant. So, does that mean the Trail Blazers will pass on him, too?
