College Players to watch- PF/C edition


Given our current glut of PF/Cs none of these guys will be high on the Jazz's radar. Given that glut, I'm not going to touch the question of how they would fit in with the Jazz as I normally would. Still, let's take a look at the cream of the crop.

1. Andre Drummond- Connecticutt

The kid is huge. 6'11" 275 and also very very fast. He is compared to Amare Stoudemire by nbadraft.net. He's gotten lots of hype-this particular article calls him the best Center prospect since Oden and mentions him in the same breath with Dwight Howard and Amare Stoudemire.

His current averages are 9.4 and 6.2 with 3 blocks in 23 minutes.

I'm not a huge fan. His head just seems doughy- I do not question his talent, but I do have serious questions about his ability to pull it all together. In that sense, I see him more as Derrick Coleman. That said, he is a nearly consensus top 3 pick, and I could well be wrong.

2. Anthony Davis, Kentcuky

Unibroooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really, really like this kids game. He's compared to Marcus Camby. He is currently averaging 11.8, 10 about a steal and an assist, plus and insane 4.4 blocks. He is a real difference maker on defense.

He's 6'10 and 220. the weight is a problem, obviously. 220 pounds won't cut it in the NBA. He had a huge growth spurt 2 years ago or so, so he has a perimeter player's skill set. Its possible, probable even, that his weight will catch up with his height spurt.

He's #1 on my own draft board. Barring Drummond exploding onto the scene later on this season, I see Anthony as the likely #1 pick.

3. Jared Sullinger, Ohio State

6'9", 280. Compared to Kevin Love by Nbadraft.net.

Averaging 16.6 and 9.3. Good field go percentage, efficient scorer. Gets to the line. Sullinger should be a solid pro, but I can't get hyped about him. I just don't see him as a can't miss prospect. Once in the NBA, I don't think he'll transcend to the level of the elite crop of PFs currently in the league. He'll be one of those guys who gets a double double, a little bit of All Star talk- I think he'll be about the quality of a Boozer who plays defense. I feel he is a slight reach in the top 3, a steal after that.

4. Thomas Robinson

Go look at his stat line- he has progressed exponentially each of his 3 seasons at Kansas, currently at 18.1 and 12.1- he was 2.5 and 2.7 his freshman year.

Hard to root against this guy. Reminds me in ways of Millsap. He's 6'9' and 237. I see him as a solid blue collar soldier in the NBA. A midlevel starter or a great 3rd big. A good pick after #7 or so, a steal after #10.
