2012 NBA Mock Draft: Terrence Ross, Tony Wroten First Round Selections

Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick knows his stuff when it comes to basketball, and his latest version of his 2012 NBA Mock Draft is no different as not one but two Washington Huskies will be selected in the first round as Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten both make the grade in his latest mock.

Make the jump for more.

Here is Amick's take on Ross, whom he has going No. 16 overall to the Houston Rockets:

As I noted when I slotted Lamb here in the first mock draft, veteran shooting guard Kevin Martin has one year left on his contract but is unlikely to return via free agency and reserve shooting guard Courtney Lee is a restricted free agent this summer. Ross, who has deep range, size and athleticism, could turn out to be a great get here.

As for Wroten, he'll be going a bit later in the first round as the Memphis Grizzlies will pick him up No. 25 overall. Here's what Amick thinks of this pick:

Wroten could creep up into the teens, but he is, in many ways, a classic late first-round pick. The speed, strength and aggressive offensive game are tremendous, but he's been criticized for his decision-making (more turnovers than assists last season) and ability to play under control. He also shot only 16.1 percent from three-point range. If he figures it out, though, he could wind up proving those advocates right who compare him to Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook. And Memphis added Gilbert Arenas to play behind Mike Conley this season, after all, so this would be worth a shot.

Sure would be great to see two Huskies making it in the first round this year, hopefully their dreams come true together. You can check out Amick's complete mock draft here.
