Langford was thought to be a solid lock for a lottery pick at the start of his freshman year at Indiana, but after a rough year for the Hoosiers, and an up-and-down performance from himself, he's starting to slide down some draft boards.
One of the latest mock drafts from NBC Sports has Langford going 11th to the Los Angeles Lakers.
It was always thought that Romeo would be a one-and-done player for Archie Miller, but Hoosier fans everywhere hoped, and maybe expected, that it would be following a deep tournament run instead of an early exit from the NIT.
