Damian Lillard Up To 6th in Chad Ford's Mock Draft

A popular landing spot for Damian Lillard over the past month has been the Portland Trailblazers at pick 11. In Chad Ford's latest mock draft, he still has Lillard going to Portland... but this time at pick 6.

Analysis: If Drummond falls here, I think they take him. But if he doesn't, I'm hearing Lillard could be the man. He wowed at the draft combine and measured very similar in size and athletic ability to Derrick Rose. While Lillard isn't nearly the same prospect as Rose, the Blazers need a point guard and Lillard has the potential to be very, very good. Taking him at No. 6 is no longer a reach. Harrison Barnes and Jeremy Lamb would also be in the mix here.
He shot up boards at the NBA combine, and it is no real surprise why. He is a great kid and has a great skillset. He should make whatever team that drafts him very happy.
