Walt, your KC picks are usually off because you insist Andy Reid likes bolstering the trenches. This is John Dorsey's personnel department and he has authority over the final 53. Reid's contributions and input are certainly important, but you're referencing him and completely overlooking the man who actually drafts the players, and does so from a system similar to the Packers.
Summary: With a fairly weak crop of seniors in the 2011 NBA Draft class, David Lighty will almost certainly find himself being drafted in the second round. He does not have the upside that is often coveted in the NBA Draft since he is a fifth-year senior, but Lighty does have experience and a proven record of being a winner and hard-nosed player.
Player Comparison: Keith Bogans. Bogans has made a living in the NBA because of his intangibles and ability to defend. Lighty is a capable offensive player but will find a spot in the NBA because of his defensive prowess and value as a role player.
