NBA Mock Draft 2012: Sam Smith Predicts Bulls Will Take SF Jeffery Taylor

Sam Smith of, in anticipation of Thursday night's 2012 NBA Draft, has released his mock draft estimates. According to Smith, the Chicago Bulls will look to add some frontcourt dept with the addition of SF Jeffery Taylor:

29. Bulls: Jeffery Taylor, Vanderbilt, small forward, 6-7 ¼, 213. He'd be the Bulls’ kind of player if he gets here, and he shouldn’t go higher than the late 20’s, anyway. He’s been likened to Wilson Chandler, which would be nice. He’s a senior and native of Sweden who is a much improved shooter, though his specialty is defense and he is relentless. Not a great wingspan, but amazingly low body fat for a mature player. Runs the floor well and fundamentally sound and probably could fill in right away some if Luol Deng is a late starter...

The Bulls currently have an All-Star small forward in Deng, but injury and contract concerns may motivate the club to bolster the position. The 2012 NBA Draft begins Thursday night at 6:00 p.m. CDT.
