Draft Kit: College Hoops Mock Draft
Draft Kit: College Hoops Mock Draft

This article is part of our Draft Kit series.

Recently, we conducted our first Tier 1 mock draft of the 2012-13 college basketball season. Tier 1 covers the Big Six conferences (ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Big East, Pac 12, SEC). We went 10 rounds and each roster needed two guards, two forwards, a center and at least one freshman.

ROUND 1

1. Team 1 - Andre Roberson, Colorado, G-F, JR
2. Team 2 - Tim Frazier, Penn State, G, SR
3. Team 3 - Vincent Council, Providence, G, SR
4. Team 4 - Cleveland Melvin, DePaul, F, JR
5. Team 5 - Jeronne Maymon, Tennessee, F, SR
6. Big Chief - Trevor Mbakwe, Minnesota, F, SR
7. Team 6 - Gorgui Dieng, Louisville, C, JR
8. Team 7 - Pierre Jackson, Baylor, G, SR
9. Team 8 - Solomon Hill, Arizona, F, SR

If Roberson can add some points to his resume, he is a worthwhile top pick. Maymon and Hill were somewhat surprising picks. Maymon had some huge games for the Volunteers as a junior, but the Marquette transfer
