With the 10th pick in the 2014 GBB Mock Draft, the Utah Jazz select:

10) Adreian Payne, PF, Michigan State

While I am very intrigued by the pure athleticism of Zach Lavine, and the "point forward" potential of Dario saric, I am going to draft the power forward from Michigan State: Adreian Payne.

A lot of experts have the jazz taking a pf at 5, but I figured I could get a solid pf a little further in the draft to pair with Derrick favors. Payne and favors similar style could mesh well together, and with thad young a tweener at the 3/4, the jazz will have a ton of flexibility in their front court lineup.
