NBA Draft Grades: Nuggets Get 'B' Grade From ESPN's Chad Ford

The latest analysis from ESPN's Chad Ford suggests the Denver Nuggets could have done better in the 2012 NBA Draft. Ford's latest draft grades have the Nuggets earning a "B" mark for their selection of Evan Fournier, Quincy Miller and Izzet Turkyilmaz:

Analysis: I'm not totally sold Fournier's game will translate at the NBA level, and he might end up being a reach at No. 20. But he is an aggressive scorer who was productive in Europe. I love the Quincy Miller pick, however. He was ranked No. 17 on our Big Board and was a steal at 38... Turkyilmaz is a project that the Nuggets will keep over in Europe for a few years. But there is some intriguing potential there.

Elsewhere, the Nuggets earned an "A" from SB Nation's Tom Ziller, a "B" from NBC Sports and a "D" from CBS Sports.
