The 2012 NBA Draft figures to consist of a deeper, more talented group of prospects that the 2011 class.  You know, if the league and players ever figure their issues out and there actually IS a NBA Draft this summer.  Team needs and outstanding trades have NOT been taken into consideration with this 2012 NBA mock draft.  Click on the players’ name for a complete, in-depth scouting report.

(By the way, The Sports Bank was graded as the most accurate 2011 NBA Mock Draft on the web.)

UPDATED: 11/16/11

31. Minnesota- Arnett Moultrie, F, Mississippi State, 6-11, Jr.
The UTEP transfer has the raw size and ability worth an early second round pick.

32. Cleveland- Augusto Cesar Lima, PF, Brazil, 6-10, 1991
Augusto Cesar Lima is an athletic big who is still developing his all-around skill set.

33. Toronto- Jeffery Taylor, SF, Vanderbilt, 6-7, Sr.
Jeffery Taylor possesses the ideal strength and athleticism for the NBA but doesn’t wow with any particular part of his game.

34. Washington- Trevor Mbawke, PF, Minnesota, 6-8, Sr.
Despite being a tad under-sized, Trevor Mbakwe is athletic and plays with tremendous effort especially on the boards.

35. Sacramento- Draymond Green, F, Michigan State, 6-6, Sr.
The true team player, Draymond Green has the intangibles and effort to be a role player at the next level.

36. New Jersey- JaMychal Green, PF, Alabama, 6-8, Sr.
An under-sized post player, JaMychal Green has an effective back to the basket game and crashes the glass.

37. Detroit- Joffrey Lauvergne, PF, France, 6-10, 1991
A combo forward with a nice inside/outside game, Joffrey Lauvergne will be a player who gets stashed overseas for a couple of years.

38. L.A. Clippers- Robert Sacre, C, Gonzaga, 7-0, Sr.
He has solid skill and athleticism for a true seven-footer and could be a serviceable back-up at the next level.

39. Charlotte- Andrew Nicholson, PF, St. Bonaventure, 6-9, Sr.
Andrew Nicholson has the look but needs to improve several areas of his game.

40. Milwaukee- Jarrod Jones, PF, Ball State, 6-9, Sr.
The Cardinal has a nice inside/outside game that should give him a chance to make it in the league.

41. Golden State- Tu Holloway, PG, Xavier, 6-0, Sr.
The player formerly known as Terrell does a little bit of everything from the point guard position.

42. Indiana- Leon Radosevic, PF, Croatia, 6-10, 1990
Not blessed with the best athleticism or skill, Leon Radosevic plays with great effort and basketball IQ.

43. Utah- Darius Johnson-Odom, SG, Marquette, 6-3, Sr.
DJO can stroke it from deep but also has explosive athleticism.  His lack of ideal size is holding him back.

44. Phoenix- Wesley Witherspoon, SF, Memphis, 6-9, Sr.
A versatile forward who can play a point forward type position, Wesley Witherspoon must bounce back from a rough junior season.

45. Philadelphia- Drew Gordon, PF, New Mexico, 6-9, Sr.
A force on the glass, Drew Gordon helped his stock with a solid junior season.

46. New York- Reggie Johnson, C, Miami FL, 6-10, Jr.
Reggie Johnson is a beast down low but needs to get in better shape before he is ready to be a NBA player.

47. Houston- Tyshawn Taylor, PG, Kansas, 6-3, Sr.
An athletic point guard, Tyshawn Taylor has underachieved the past couple seasons at KU.

48. Atlanta- Dee Bost, PG, Mississippi State, 6-2, Sr.
Dee Bost is a quick point guard who had become a better distributor during his time as a Bulldog.

49. Memphis- Darius Miller, G/F, Kentucky, 6-7, Sr.
Versatility is the biggest asset for Darius Miller.

50. New Orleans- Terrence Henry, PF, Mississippi, 6-9, Sr.
The Rebel senior will need a superb season to earn a spot in the second round.

51. Portland- Renardo Sidney, PF, Mississippi State, 6-10, Jr.
The Bulldog comes with a ton of baggage but is skilled for his size.

52. Denver- Robbie Hummel, SF, Purdue, 6-8, Sr.
The fifth-year senior will have to show he is healthy after suffering a pair of ACL injuries the past two seasons.

53. Orlando- Ashton Gibbs, PG, Pitt, 6-2, Sr.
He can shoot lights out but the question is whether or not he can play the point at the next level.

54. Oklahoma City- Eli Holman, PF, Detroit, 6-10, Sr.
After flying under the radar at Detroit, Eli Holman should draw attention due to his size and physicality.

55. Boston- Kevin Jones, F, West Virginia, 6-8, Sr.
Kevin Jones has a nice inside/outside game but no true position at the next level.

56. Dallas- Brandon Wood, PG, Michigan State, 6-2, Sr.
After transferring from Valpo, Brandon Wood should get some great exposure this season at MSU.

57. L.A. Lakers- Jae Crowder, F, Marquette, 6-6, Sr.
An under-sized power forward, Jae Crowder will have to adjust to being a wing player at the next level but plays extremely hard and can shoot the three which will assist in his transition.

58. Miami- Xavier Gibson, F/C, Florida State, 6-11, Sr.
The skill and versatility is there, but Xavier Gibson has yet to produce at a consistent level.

59. San Antonio- Yancy Gates, PF, Cincinnati, 6-9, Sr.
A physical big man with a nice touch on his jumper, Yancy Gates to play with more intensity to prove he can play in the league.

60. Chicago- Augustus Gilchrist, PF, South Florida, 6-10, Sr.
Augustus Gilchrist is a skilled, versatile big man who needs to have a solid senior season to solidify his draft status.
