2012 NBA Mock Draft: Another Publication Ties John Jenkins To Chicago

The Chicago Bulls are once again tied to Vanderbilt guard John Jenkins with the 29th overall selection in the latest mock draft from, which was posted over the weekend. This is far from the first time that Jenkins has been suggested as a strong fit for the Bulls, as he's been a frequent focus of the team in many mocks.

Jenkins, a 6-foot-4 guard, has mainly been tied to Chicago because of his superb shooting skills. The Bulls are desperately in need of some additional offensive production, particularly on the perimeter now that Derrick Rose is likely to miss significant time next season.

Over three seasons at Vanderbilt, Jenkins developed a reputation as one of the best shooters in the nation, leading the nation in three-point shots made in 2011-2012, his junior year. During that season, Jenkins shot 47 percent from the field and 43 percent from long range en route to averaging 19.9 points per game.
