2013 NBA draft: Duke's Mason Plumlee a solid bet for middle of the 1st round

With the June 27 NBA draft fast approaching, Mason Plumlee looks to be a solid bet to go in the middle of the first round, according to the mock drafts:

Draft Express: No. 14 to the Utah Jazz

Sports Illustrated: No. 16 to Boston the Boston Celtics

ESPN: No. 17 to the Atlanta Hawks

NBA Draft Net: No. 19 to the Cleveland Cavaliers

Yahoo!: No. 22 to the Brooklyn Nets

CBS Sports: No. 22 to the Brooklyn Nets

Of course, it only takes one team to pull a surprise that sends everyone's mock drafts up in flames. Keep in mind that, at this time last year, no one was projecting Miles Plumlee to go in the first round.

Between preparing for the draft and criss-crossing the country for workouts, Plumlee say down with Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose as part of their NBA job interview series. The trio have a candid conversation and review a little bit of film. Check out the above video -- it's definitely worth a watch.
