I feel such joy after telling people Tyler was an actual athlete years ago when people claimed he was the next Mark Madsen.

The bench reps mean nothing, considering Durant couldn't even do 1 bench press yet hes one of the top 5 SF's in the NBA.

If Hansbrough wasn't white, he probably would be touted the best prospect in this years weak draft. Whoever gets him in the 20s, will be getting a steal. Big men are hard to come by, even more so when they are as solid as Ty is.

Man, of all the drafts, Clippers have to get #1 in a weak one.

18 reps of the bench press is no joke. That's equal to Dejuan Blair and Kevin Love. Tyler is fine when it comes to stength. Dwight Howard only benched 185 for 7 reps when he came in the league (outta HS though).

This is true.

I dont even know what the lane agility thing is, but I would imagine that doesnt translate to game situations at all either.
Game quickness is more about smarts then athletic ability

Hansboruogh has also had 2+ more years to get stronger then all those guys.

But ya, I would assume that 18 bench reps is above average for Big men in the NBA anyways.

Nah if this draft was in 88' or something around then with a career like Hansbrough had he'd be going Top 5.

When guys like Jrue Holliday without any type of performance as freshmen are going as high as 4th, there is a problem with what scouts are looking for and thats potential over production.

If Hansbrough can come off the bench and give you 8/4 rookie season hed be worth it late lottery.

Lane agility is supposed to measure lateral quickness... which is very important.

Who is this french point guard Beaubois with a 39 inch vertical and blazing fast lane agility drill.

I wonder if he has any chance of getting drafted.

Wasn't Griffin supposed to be far stronger, athletic and quicker then Beasley?

Bench: 18-22 in favor of Griffin
Max Vert: Equal
Agility: 10.94 to 11.06 in favor of Griffin
3/4 sprint: 3.24 to 3.28 in favor of Beasley
Reach: 8'11 to 8'9 in favor of Beasley
Wingspan: 7'0 to 6'11 in favor of Beasley
Reach: 8'11 to 8'9 in favor of Beasley

Where is he better? The things he is better in is so minute that it may vary if there were more goes or depending on how the player felt that day. Not to mention Beasley did this test while a year younger then Griffin. So his results after NBA training would not only beat the ones he put up as a rookie in the draft.
