Looking on NBADraft.net | Home front page and they have Taylor getting drafted in the second round to Charlotte. Normally, I don't pay any attention to online mock drafts, but this website has done well over the years at predicting which players would go where. Take it for what its worth
mike taylor measured in at 6 feet and 3/4s of an inch w/o shoes. actually a lot of guys came in shorter than listed (which is not a surprise). Taylor also weighed in at 166.
taylor is an undersized two guard that lacks point guard skills. hes one heck of a player, but very few players make it in the NBA as 6'1 shooting guards. he may get drafted and i really do wish the best for him, but if he is going to make it in the NBA he will need to transition into the PG spot. I'm honestly not sure how well he will do that.
he's doing so well in the pre draft camp right now, but when that wears off he might have some difficulty actually getting drafted. if a team is looking for a two guard... they are much more likely to take Richard Roby at 6'6. Taylors size limits his defensive abilities against bigger wings. He certainly could get drafted, but generally teams don't jump on undersized twos when they could take roby at 6'6 or brumbaugh at 6'9...or stash a foreign player overseas.
draft boards jump on hype and a good workout or camp, but taylor still has a long way to go to get drafted.
