NBA Draft 2011: Jeremy Tyler Picked By CelticsBlog In SB Nation's Mock

Jeremy Tyler, the San Diego native who played in Japan last season, was selected by CelticsBlog with the No. 25 overall pick in SB Nation's collaborative 2011 NBA Mock Draft.

Tyler is definitely a projected pick, but if groomed well, could play like a top-of-the-draft talent.

There's no such thing as a sure thing this late in a weak draft, so why not swing for the fences with a big man that has top 10 talent? Will he contribute to a title contender right away? Well, under normal circumstances I'd say "doubtul," but we have exactly 2 bigs on the roster and injuries are pretty much a given with this team. So if he's on the roster, he'll probably play. (via SB Nation)

Tyler, who averaged 9.9 points and 6.4 rebounds for the Tokyo Apache last season, had originally committed to play for Rick Pitino at Louisville, but chose to forgo his senior year of high school and signed with Maccabi Haifa in Israel for $140,000. Tyler ultimately decided to leave the team after a problem with playing time.
