With the No. 22 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Denver Nuggets selected Morehead State big man Kenneth Faried.
Faried could be moved to the Portland Trail Blazers in a rumored trade involving Andre Miller and Raymond Felton. Faried is an amazing rebounder and perhaps the most energetic defender in college basketball last season. He's undersized at the NBA level, but figures to follow in the path of doppelgangers Kevin Love and Kris Humphries and make a great per-minute impact in the pros.
