2009 Mock draft: Round four

Fourth round

Justin Young, National Hoops Report
19. Daniel Orton, C, Oklahoma City (Okla.) Bishop McGuinness (pictured above)

“Like point guards, centers are a rare breed in the 2009 class. So I wanted to make sure my team has a huge presence inside. And you don’t get much bigger than Orton. The injuries and ho-hum work ethic will be two of the major concerns that come with him though. I’ll take those question marks. Orton has an enormous amount of talent.”

Rob Harrington, Prep Stars
20. Keith Gallon, PF, Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill

“Gallon ranks among the 15 best talents in the senior class, the only question being whether he'll get and keep himself in shape. His play this season was encouraging, and I believe he'll provide a constant scoring threat on the interior.”

Jerry Meyer, Rivals.com
21. John Jenkins, SG, Gallatin (Tenn.) Station Camp

“Once you get past the elite shooting guards, there is no better shooting guard than John Jenkins. He is the best shooter in the country and at the rate that his game is developing he very well might end up in the elite category of shooting guards.”

Brian Snow, Rivals.com
22. Mfon Udofia, PG, Lithonia (Ga.) Miller Grove

“Point guards are very hard to find. Udofia is one of the best in the nation on the defensive end, and he knows how to run a team.”

Patrick Stanwood, HoopScoop
23. Aaric Murray, C, Concordeville (Pa.) Glen Mills

“Murray has a large amount of upside. Long, strong and already an elite shot blocker, Murray is a major steal for LaSalle.”

Eric Bossi, EBoss Hoops
24. Thomas Robinson, PF, Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy

“Without a top flight shooter or point guard around at this point, I want to grab an athletic interior rebounder/defender. Few are better than Robinson in this regard.”
