NBA Mock Draft 2012: Wizards Set With Bradley Beal At No. 3?

For all the pre-draft shuffling in the top five of the 2012 NBA Draft over the past few months, most mock drafts have settled on a near unanimous top three. This includes one of the best draft sites out there, Draft Express. Jonathan Givony of DX projects that the Bobcats will select Thomas Robinson at No. 2, leaving a certain Florida shooting guard for the Wizards to snatch up at No.3. Via Yahoo!:

After adding two significant contracts to their books this week in a controversial trade, the Wizards' biggest position of need appears to be at shooting guard. Beal has the perfect skills and demeanor to complement the ultra-quick but mediocre perimeter shooting John Wall, which should make him an excellent fit on Washington's roster.

Unless the Cavaliers trade with the Bobcats at No. 2 and leapfrog the Wizards, it's looking more and more like Beal will be Ernie Grunfeld's guy.
