2012 NBA Mock Draft: Hawks May Target Vanderbilt SF Jeffery Taylor

The Atlanta Hawks are preparing for the 2012 NBA Draft and have plenty of names that could be added to their wish list for a first round pick.

John McMullen of The Sports Network believes that the Hawks will use their No. 23 overall pick in the first round to select Jeffery Taylor of the Vanderbilt Commodores. Here is his take:

23. - Atlanta Hawks - Jeffery Taylor (Vanderbilt), Small Forward (6-7, 230) - Josh Smith wants out of Atlanta, so new GM Danny Ferry may want to secure a small forward with some upside.

Luckily for the Hawks, they already feature a fairly complete team and don't need to try to make too big of a splash at the draft. Taylor would represent a fairly safe choice
