Last Minute Consensus Mock Draft 2010

As most of you know, tomorrow night is the NBA Draft.  Finally, after weeks of analysis full of redundant lingo (the yearly progression from the NCAA tournament: "student athlete" becomes "testing the waters," which becomes "upside," so on and so forth).  While John Wall is the consensus number one (and Evan Turner, by the mock drafts at least, is the consensus second pick), there are a lot of differences between experts opinions.  I sampled HoopsHypeDraftExpressNBADraft.netFox's Jeff GoodmanSI's Ian ThomsenRush the CourtESPN's Chad Ford, and SB Nation compatriot Ridiculous Upside for the averages.  I also included John Hollinger's mock draft (but it had too many outliers to be put in the formula) and my own mock draft.

 

See the table after the jump.

To calculate the "Consensus" column, I gave point values for each pick (300 for first, 290 for second, etc.) and totaled the points for all the drafts.

* Note that Chad Ford's numbers do not actually come from his Mock Draft but his Top 20 2010 Prospects.

** Because of NBADraft.net's outlying pick, I think Ebanks is a little overrated by the formula.
