2012 NBA Mock Draft: Tyshawn Taylor Could Be A Possibility For Bulls

While many NBA mock drafts have the Chicago Bulls taking a shooting guard with their first round pick, CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman projects that the team will select point guard Tyshawn Taylor.

Tyshawn Taylor, PG, Kansas: Can be the ideal backup to Derrick Rose. Brings speed, toughness and a point guard with experience to the table.

Taylor could help the Bulls in the absence of Derrick Rose, who is going to miss a significant chunk of the 2012-13 season, if not the entire season.

Taylor averaged 16.6 points and 4.8 assists per game for the Kansas Jayhawks in 2011-12. He also shot a good percentage from three-point range throughout his college career.
