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.

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.
