NBA Mock Draft 2012: Bradley Beal Still High On Cavaliers' List

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been interested in Florida's Bradley Beal throughout the draft process. With this in mind, it's no surprise that ESPN's Chad Ford has Beal slotted at the Cavs' No. 4 spot in his mock draft released Wednesday.

The Cavs need a wing and like MKG, Beal and Harrison Barnes. Andre Drummond is also in the mix, but the Cavs don't yet have a comfort level with him. If this comes down to Beal or Barnes, I think Beal will have the slight edge here.

While others such as Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick have the Cavaliers selecting Barnes, Beal and his agent appear to be confident he won't slip past Cleveland. He is scheduled to work out for the Cavs on Saturday and will not work out for teams beneath them in the lottery.
