Full First Round Mock - Yes Finally!

This is in actual draft order except for the four playoff teams left. I still think this is one of the best drafts on paper that I've seen in the last ten years.

I would not be surprised to see 8-10 perennial all-stars and a handful of solid starters as well. Some international players may even be squeezed out of the first round due to the influx of American talent eligible this season.

1. Portland Greg Oden C Ohio State
2. Seattle Kevin Durant F Texas
3. Atlanta Mike Conley PG Ohio State
4. Memphis Brendan Wright F UNC
5. Boston Al Horford F Florida
6. Milwaukee Corey Brewer G Florida
7. Minnesota Al Thornton F Florida State
8. Charlotte Julian Wright F Kansas
9. Chicago Yi Jianlian F China
10. Sacramento Jeff Green F Georgetown
11. Atlanta Jason Smith C Colorado
12. Philadelphia Joakim Noah F Florida
13. New Orleans Thaddeus Young F Georgia Tech
14. LAC Nick Young G USC
15. Detroit Javaris Crittendon PG Georgia Tech
16. Washington Spencer Hawes C Washington
17. New Jersey Josh McRoberts F Duke
18. Golden State Acie Law PG Texas A&M
19. LAL Aaron Affalo G UCLA
20. Miami Sean Williams C (formerly of Boston College)
21. Philadelphia Morris Almond G Rice
22. Charlotte Rodney Stuckey F E.Washington
23. New York Derrick Byars F Vanderbilt
