With the No. 11 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Portland Trail Blazers selected Meyers Leonard from Illinois.
Leonard is one of the top-rated centers and one of the few 7-footers in the 2012 class. Despite Leonard's size, rebounding is a concern: He averaged 8 per game in about 31 minutes. He doesn't have near the skill level of a Chris Kaman, but he's still young (20, having spent just two years at Illinois), so that could develop. Depending on how his body develops -- he appears to have the frame to take on more weight -- he could end up as a bigger Jason Thompson, which wouldn't be bad at all.
The Blazers took point guard Damian Lillard with the No. 6 pick.
