    Up or Down?

    All I have read from ESPN, Nbadraft.net, draftexpress.com is how he would have benefitted from going now because of his age, a weaker draft and likely wont go as high as he would have this year. Then draftexpress does an updated mock for 2010 and puts him 10th. 9 spots up from where they had him in 2009. Doesnt make sense. IMO I dont see how even though it will be a "stronger" draft he wouldn't be able to become a top 10 pick and Big 12 POTY. (Altho Aldrich is projected top 5 consistently) That is if Brackins goes next year.

    Any thoughts?

    Brackins will be lottery if he goes next year. I hope he comes back for 2010 but I kinda doubt it. I would say 10th would be where he goes next year.

    Age really doesn't matter to me concerning NBA players, if he's good he'll play 5-10 seasons in the NBA after senior year. If he sucks then 2-3.

    I would get him because of his age and he would be ready from the get go next year.

    Sounds like a lot of sour grapes to me, especially from Chad Ford.

    In all fairness, CB may end up going lower in next year's draft than he would have this year. Just gaining weight/strength isn't going to move him up in the draft -- he could do that sitting on an NBA bench. Brackins could move up in the draft by doing a couple of things...significantly improving his post D and showing he can score on the pick & roll.

    If CB has another 20/10 season showing nothing new, he's still a first rounder, but not as high as he would've been in this weak draft.

    I predict it depends on how well his season goes next year. I'll be back to gloat about my prediction in one year!
