2012 NBA Draft: What Mock Drafts are Predicting for Virginia's Mike Scott

Virginia's Mike Scott is predicted to go as high as the middle of the second round. Will he be able to improve his stock by draft time? (Peter G. Aiken-US PRESSWIRE)

The 2012 NBA Draft is just a little over six weeks away, but mock NBA drafts are popping everywhere. Virginia's own Mike Scott has been spending the past couple months working out in Vegas and presumably trying to put on a little bit of muscle mass while slowing down the aging process as much as humanly possible (which is to say, basically not).

While most mock drafts at this stage are only going through first round picks, there are some more exhaustive lists, and it's in these lists that you'll find that Scott is predicted to be drafted in the middle of the second round.

NBADraft.net predicts that Scott will be taken by the Wizards as the 16th pick of the second round (46th overall). And updated as of May 5, they have him as No. 51 overall on their big board.

Meanwhile, Chad Ford from the worldwide leader only did a first round mock draft (as of April 30), but his Top 100 of 2012 has the 6'8, 237 lb. power forward as the No. 44 prospect of the draft. Ford compliments pretty much all aspects of Scott's game, including his rebounding, inside/outside ability to score, 3-point range and "high motor," but considers his age and his smaller size as negatives. Ford/ESPN predict him as either a second round pick or undrafted.

As official workouts begin and more scouting reports are available, we'll keep you updated as to Scott's progress, and provide you with our own analysis of where he might fit. SB Nation's San Antonio Spurs site, Pounding the Rock, calls Scott a potential gold mine for the Spurs.
