It's time for our first mock draft of 2012.
Although very little is set in stone at this point -- the draft order will change, players' stocks will change and we won't know which underclassmen have officially declared for the draft until the April 29 deadline -- we can focus on what each team would likely do with its pick.
(If you want to see what your team would do with the No. 1 pick, play our Lottery Mock Draft, which has more than 2,000 scenarios. Also check out our Top 100 list, which is a reflection of the consensus of NBA scouts and GMs about a player's relative draft value.)
How will the first round of the 2012 draft play out? Chad Ford offers his first stab.
