2012 NBA Mock Draft : Cleveland Cavaliers Select Florida SG Bradley Beal.

NEWARK – With the fourth pick in the Rant Sports 2012 NBA Mock Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers would select shooting guard Bradley Beal out of Florida.

Beal, a 6’5 sharp-shooter will hopefully provide a compliment to NBA Rookie of The Year in point guard, Kyrie Irving. In the case of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Beal may be just the cure to their offensive woes on the wing.  Beal, who would average 14.8 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game and be named to the SEC All-Freshman Team in 2011-12.

Due to his NBA-range three-point shooting, Beal is considered by many to be the top-ranked shooting guard prospect in the draft.  Considered to be a NBA prototypical shooting guard, Beal has a strong build, solid size along with a 6’7 wingspan.

Along with explosive Russell Westbrook-like athleticism, Beal has a deadly jump shot, is unselfish, and is willing to drive through the heart of the defense.  If there is one minor area of concern for Beal, is his tendency to defer to teammates too often and a lack of assertiveness at finishing at the rim. Beal also has a tendency to be inconsistent in his shooting at times.

Beal, who would shoot 33.9 percent from three-point range during his only year in Gainesville, has drawn comparisons to New Orleans Hornets shooting guard Eric Gordon and Boston Celtics sharpshooter Ray Allen.  What would make Beal such a great fit in Cleveland is due to the recent retirement of starter Anthony Parker, Beal could come in right away and make an immediate impact at a position of need in Cleveland.

Kyrie Irving is obviously very talented, and but this spin move to get open for a jump shot taught a Boston Celtics player not to be overly aggressive when closing out.
