Jermaine Taylor-UCF


He should have a long career as a shut down defender.

Adrien's problem is that he hasn't shown much improvement year to year. His free throw percentage is still horrid and he doesn't seem laterally quick enough to play the swingman position at the next level. I like him enough to think he has a place as a tweener forward for a team that could use his toughness. He could end up like Carl Landry.

Robinson's athleticism is out of this world. He definitly won't be out of place in the NBA, where athleticism reigns supreme. He does lack a bit of size though, but should be fine as a backup SF.

He reminds me of Renaldo Balkman, who is carving out a nice career for himself. Stanley comes in with instant hustle and energy, willing to get the crowd fired up with his play. He's super athletic and has nice long arms to block shots and to snare down long rebounds. I see a nice career for him if he never loses his intensity.

He's going to have to develop a decent mid range game, which he's already got the tools to do, to have some success at the next level.

I don't see what's so hard to understand about that.

Adrien is not playing anything other then the 4 in the NBA.

If not he'll play that in Europe.

He has literally no wing skills.

You can't just develop a entire perimeter game once your already 22.

He'll struggle at the 4, greatly. He's only 6'6 and hasn't got a huge frame like Maxiell. He might have to play the 3 and occasionly play the 4, when matching up against smaller PF's, such as Powe, Milsap, Hayes, etc.

I didn't mention a perimeter game, I mentioned a mid-range game, which he has got the tools to build on. If he really developed a mid-range game, he'd be much more servicable.

He'll be a PF or nothing in the NBA, at 6'6, 240 lbs. He doesn't have the skills or the quickness to be a SF, although he might be able to operate at that position occasionally. Frankly he isn't much of an NBA prospect at all. He had a nice college career, he might be able to be a second rounder and ride an NBA bench for a few years, then maybe play in a foreign league.

Taj Gibson


16 10+ rebound games, averaged 14/9 with 3 blocks. Six games of 5+ blocks. 14/11 during the Pac-10 Tournament. Will end up being an energy big off the bench, like Powe for the Celts.

I really like Pendergraph. I think Heytvelt will stick because of his jumper. And I really like Calathes.

There's actually a lot of guys I like later in this draft.

Adrian really is too small, and he actually had a lot of trouble finishing consistently in traffic in the big east. He has some game, but I just don't see it translating.
Stanley Robinson however I could see being a dramatically better pro than a college player. Especially in the right setting with a serious PG for him to run with. He's really big, I expected a raw 6-7 wing guy, but he's 6-10 and still runs and jumps like that. He could be a nice PF off the bench to accelerate the tempo. I see an Eddie Robinson type career where he'll come out of nowhere and have a really good run. Eddie got ruined physically, and was never nearly as good as the general public thought, because he was such a highlight guy, but he brought serious goods if only in spurts. Stanley needs to amp up the energy a bit, but that may be easier at the pro level when it'll be clearer what's expected of him, rather than really trying to develop his whole game like they were hoping for at UConn.

Robert Vaden may not make it, he can shoot but he was very stoppable at UAB if good physical defense was played against him.

Yes, I think he's a real sleeper. Plays hard, and is working hard to develop a perimeter game.
