    Mike Taylor likely to get drafted

    Looking on NBADraft.net | Home front page and they have Taylor getting drafted in the second round to Charlotte. Normally, I don't pay any attention to online mock drafts, but this website has done well over the years at predicting which players would go where. Take it for what its worth

    Re: Mike Taylor likely to get drafted

    It's kind of funny to have read the reports a few weeks ago about how he weighs like 180 now - he weighs 166, just about the same as he did in college. He still had a great 39 inch vert though.

    Couple other notables - Beasley is only 6'7" without shoes and Rose is only 6'1-1/2".

    Re: Mike Taylor likely to get drafted

    I'd believe 180. I'm about 3-4 inches shorter than Mike Taylor, and I guarantee I'm skinnier than he is, and I weigh 160.

    Re: Mike Taylor likely to get drafted

    NBADraft.net has him listed from the D-League rather than from Iowa State.

    Re: Mike Taylor likely to get drafted

    mike taylor measured in at 6 feet and 3/4s of an inch w/o shoes. actually a lot of guys came in shorter than listed (which is not a surprise). Taylor also weighed in at 166.

    taylor is an undersized two guard that lacks point guard skills. hes one heck of a player, but very few players make it in the NBA as 6'1 shooting guards. he may get drafted and i really do wish the best for him, but if he is going to make it in the NBA he will need to transition into the PG spot. I'm honestly not sure how well he will do that.

    he's doing so well in the pre draft camp right now, but when that wears off he might have some difficulty actually getting drafted. if a team is looking for a two guard... they are much more likely to take Richard Roby at 6'6. Taylors size limits his defensive abilities against bigger wings. He certainly could get drafted, but generally teams don't jump on undersized twos when they could take roby at 6'6 or brumbaugh at 6'9...or stash a foreign player overseas.

    draft boards jump on hype and a good workout or camp, but taylor still has a long way to go to get drafted.
