NBA Draft Rumors: Perry Jones Slipping To End Of Lottery

While Baylor forward Perry Jones III has been reportedly impressing scouts in private workouts, it hasn't seemed to affect his draft stock much, at least according to the latest mock from Draft Express.

One of the leading draft-related sites on the internet, DX has Jones going to the Milwaukee Bucks with the No. 12 overall selection.

At 6'11 235 with the athleticism and skill-level to play all three front-court positions in the NBA, Jones is as talented a forward as any of the players in the draft, including likely No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis.

However, DX has his as the sixth forward of the board, behind Davis, Kansas PF Thomas Robinson, Ohio State PF Jared Sullinger, UNC PF John Henson and SF Harrison Barnes.

With Davis and Robinson near locks to be taken in the top 5, Jones will likely be competing with Sullinger, Henson and Barnes for draft position over the next month. All three had more productive collegiate careers, but none are as talented as Jones.
