NBA mock draft: Grant Jerrett moves up 2013 boards, Solomon Hill slides

Many have Grant Jerrett creeping up in the second round while senior Solomon Hill slides; former UA guard Josiah Turner has also kept scouts' eyes on him.


Grant Jerrett has recently crept onto the tail ends of NBA mock draft boards. Quickly, he's risen on many. The freshman stretch 4 impressed with his draft combine workout that included a shooting drill that the 6-foot-10 big man aced with flying colors. In an age where NBA teams are just fine -- and have more tools such as the D-League -- to develop fresh talent, Jerrett's leaving the Arizona Wildcats isn't all that crazy.

So far, he's proving his decision won't be a complete flop.

While Jerrett's name has popped up on most mock drafts, it's often been found listed before senior Solomon Hill's.

Hill took part in the Brooklyn-hosted combine and worked out in a group of small forwards that included Arizona State forward Carrick Felix. In a similar workout between some point guard, jettisoned UA guard Josiah Turner took part and lost a one-on-one battle to Louisville guard and one-time Arizona recruit Peyton Siva. Adam Zagoria tweeted that Turner did look good running up and down the floor, but an anonymous general manager told him that he wouldn't touch the former UA guard because of his offcourt troubles.
