2011 NBA Mock Draft: Jordan Williams To Washington Wizards In Latest Chad Ford Mock

ESPN.com's Chad Ford has the Wizards taking former Maryland standout Jordan Williams with their second round pick in Thursday's draft, the 34th overall selection. 

The big man left UMD after his sophomore year, during which he averaged 16.9 points and 11.8 rebounds per game as the disappointing Terps' only consistent scoring threat and presence on the glass. 

The pick would make a lot of sense for the Wizards, whose President, Ernie Grunfeld, said he'd prefer to take a big man to boost the team's front court depth. 

Williams would almost certainly do just that. At 6-10, he's big enough to match up with other NBA big men, and the rebounding skills that made him a double-double machine at Maryland will likely carry over to the Association. ESPN.com's True Hoop Network lists Williams as one of their top-five value picks for Thursday's draft, citing his rebounding skills as the reason why he could contribute to an NBA roster.
