2012 NBA Mock Draft: Jeffery Taylor To Bulls In Latest Ziller Mock

In recent years, speculation surrounding the Chicago Bulls during the NBA Draft has mostly focused on the team upgrading its shooting, specifically at the two-guard position. In the 2011 NBA Draft the Bulls drafted forward Jimmy Butler and in the same offseason signed free agent shooting guard Richard Hamilton, but once again the team is expected by many to look for help in the backcourt or along the wing.

In his most recent 2012 NBA mock draft, SBNation's Tom Ziller sees the Bulls picking small forward Jeffery Taylor, who averaged 16.1 points per game for the Vanderbilt Commodores last season. Taylor would be more in the mold of Butler than, say, Kyle Korver, but he did shoot 42% from three last season as a senior, up from 34% as a junior.

If there is a major knock on Taylor it's probably his age— at 23-years-old, he's one of the oldest players in the draft.
