Here is an article I found in the Rocky Mountain News about the Nuggets draft
To me the tone in this article is very negative about the draft and tells me that the Nuggets won't get someone good from it. He talks about how Lopez is the worst of the twins and Chalmers who he basically doesn't like at all.
To me I like to see the Nuggets take Chalmers because watching him play in the Championship game shows me that he is clutch and he can take on a role that will suit the Nuggets.

I really like your list here very much. I think the most obtainable guy that may not be drafted is Josh Duncan. If you look at the numerous mock drafts he is expected to not be drafted at all or go late in the second round. To me Duncan brings intensity to the game, reminds me a bit of Paul Pierce in a way. He is probably one of the most underrated player in the draft. I personally won't mind if the Nuggets drop down on the boards to get Duncan. I'd like to see us get a pg or center with the 20th pick and get a second round pick to pick up Duncan.
All your pg's are gettable even though it may be a stretch considering the number of teams in need of a pg nowadays. Nelson and Chalmers are the two guys I think we could pick up with ease.
I like all the SG's you posted, Jefferson is going to be the first one picked in the draft. Cavs want to trade up to 15 to get Rush, Rush is a well rounded player. Walker has been blanketed with injuries as of late and he is great player, but injuries might even drop him out of the whole draft.
Your PF's are for the most part going to be gone, except for Dorsey who may go late first round or early second round.
Centers are loaded in this draft class and the guys you put up there are very obtainable to the Nuggets. Ajinca's stock is rising especially with great workouts that he has been having and some say Hibbert will be picked up second round because of his inconsistency.
imo I think the Nuggets will trade Kleiza and Camby for the most part. Trading Iverson and Martin will be a stretch because of the hefty contracts and age.
Jeffries, Nachbar, and Gadzurich that CaptainOwlClub suggested can be obtained in a three way trade involving Camby and Kleiza.
