2012 NBA Mock Draft: Kendall Marshall Heads To Denver In Chad Ford's Latest

The Denver Nuggets are widely thought to be targeting two positions in the 2012 NBA Draft: point guard and power forward. Their decision will likely heavily be dictated by which players are available at No. 20 overall, but in the newest mock draft from ESPN's Chad Ford they land a gem: North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall.

Marshall was once considered to be in contention for a top 10 selection, but he has slid in mock drafts recently as Weber State's Damian Lillard has emerged as the consensus top point guard prospect. That said, the Nuggets would likely be ecstatic to see Marshall fall out of the lottery and into their laps, especially since he's been frequently compared to impending Denver free agent point guard Andre Miller.
