WRG 2012 Mock Draft - #25 Memphis Grizzlies

If we were drafting strictly by need, we'd be looking for a backup PG at this pick, but we aren't drafting by need and aren't going to reach for a player just to fill a slot.

We could use perimeter shooting, but we don't want to just take a one dimensional player who can't do anything but shoot. Like we said, we aren't going to reach in order just to fill a need.

Instead, we see a player whose hard nosed attitude and tough defense fits into our team philosophy. A player who can defend multiple positions, but is still very competent as a spot up shooter and might even be able to help us with that problem.

With the 25th pick, the Memphis Grizzlies select Jeff Taylor, SF, Vanderbilt

Ride em cowboy!

Jeff Taylor's style of play fits in perfectly with how our team plays. He's a physical player who is very strong and willing to get dirty on the defensive end. He's made strides as a shooter and we hope he can help us by stretching the defense at times and draining some long range daggers.  His potential is very high, and we are very high on his chance to thrive in our system.
