2012 NBA Mock Draft: Cleveland Cavaliers Select Bradley Beal With No. 3 Pick

In Chad Ford's 2012 NBA Mock Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers select Bradley Beal with the third overall pick. The order of the mock draft is based on the highest lottery odds, as the order of the draft has not been decided yet. Via Ford:

Analysis: If the Cavs can stay in the top 3, it's a huge outcome for them. The Cavs scored big time when they landed Kyrie Irving last year. They would complete their backcourt overhaul if they could put Beal next to him. That would give them two high-octane scorers who can both handle the ball, get to the rim and shoot it -- an ideal scenario for the Cavs.

Bradley Beal was a freshman sensation for Billy Donovan's Gators, leading the the team with 6.7 rebounds, while ranking second with 6.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.
