CBS.com -- Gorgui Dieng, C, Louisville


CBSSports.com picks...Dieng, C, Louisville.

KnicksNow: As we've discussed, Dieng is a proven shot blocker and rebounder. Jeff Goodman likes him at this spot, after watching him for years as CBS' college basketball insider, because he thinks he'd be a suitable backup to Tyson Chandler. While the Knicks, like most teams, would be more likely to take the best available player rather than draft for positional need, Dieng's skill set would seem to be a nice match. As Goodman notes, he is not a superlative athlete, but has a clear strength in his D.
