2009 Mock draft: Round three

Third round

Eric Bossi, EBoss Hoops
13. Michael Snaer, SG, Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde (pictured above)

"The wings in this class are pretty weak so I take Snaer because he can play at both the two and the three on offense. I love that he can create his own offense (great mid-range game) and he's also a top notch defender.

Patrick Stanwood, HoopScoop
14. Ryan Kelly, PF, Raleigh (N.C.) Ravenscroft School

“Though he has a reputation for being an overly finesse player, Kelly has established himself as one of the top PF's in the senior class. In addition to his hardwood prowess, one could argue that he is the most book smart top 25 player in the last five years.”

Brian Snow,
15. Jordan Hamilton, SF, Los Angeles (Calif.) Dominguez

“Hamilton and Stephenson are two of the best scorers in the country, and could complement each other very well.”

Jerry Meyer,
16. Milton Jennings, PF, Summerville (S.C.) Pinewood Prep

“Don't know that I can even play Jennings with my first two picks, but I want to make sure I get a four man who can stretch the defense with range and no one in this class is better at that than Jennings.”

Rob Harrington, Prep Stars
17. Alex Oriakhi, PF, Tilton (N.H.) Tilton School

“Oriakhi brings toughness and provides a primary rebounder, defensive stopper and fine outlet passer to start the break. He's also a proven competitor and enjoys a physical challenge.”

Justin Young, National Hoops Report
18. Dante Taylor, PF, Fort Washington (Md.) National Christian

“It didn’t get any easier than this. Taylor makes perfect sense at this spot because I need a low-post scorer and tough guy down in the paint. He has star potential written all over him and brings a toughness to the game.”
