This is a video that kind of demonstrates what he is. Not a spectacular dunker or dominant shotblocker, but the skills and natural scoring ability at 7'0 make him a commodity.

The kid will need to bulk up and toughen up to reach his full potential as an NBA PF, but barring an unbelievable college season by someone other than John Wall, or an injury to Donatas himself, he will most likely join Wall in being drafted in the top 2 based on their extremely high ceilings.
Pretty much every scouting report if read painted donatas in the way you have. He seems to be a good dribbler with a very good first step and can shoot the three and can also play in the post. I just wish i could watch more of his game, but i guess i really cant right now. If all the scouting reports are accurate he would fit Rambis's system perfectly!
