NBA Mock Draft: West Virginia's Kevin Jones Projected To Jazz

After considering entering the draft following the 2011 NCAA basketball season, West Virginia forward Kevin Jones stayed for his senior season and has since seen his draft stock plummet. Once considered a first round pick, Jones is now thought by most as a possible second round pick.

In the latest mock draft from NBA Draft site, DraftExpress, Jones found his way into the projection, going to the Jazz in the second round with the No. 19 pick of the round.

The 6-7, 251 pounder is ranked as the 8th best senior prospect and 37th overall prospect on the site, drawing comparisons to Udonis Haslem and Chevon Troutman. Jones averaged 19.9 points and 10.9 rebounds per game in his senior campaign.
