why are some players with lower ppg and rebounds and stuff like that considered lottery picks when players projected to go 2nd round put up solod numbers in college? jerome jordan -15ppg 9boards and 2blks, yet he's projected to go 2nd round, 46th.

mix of rondo/wade IMO. He's got very good size for a point at 6'4, he's got a huge wingspan and the potential to be a all NBA defensive guard. One of the fastest players in the NBA with the ball. Most people believe he is better than rose coming out of college which is saying something. He has excellent vision and potential to be a lethal slasher and scorer ala wade.

I would probably describe him as a Rondo/Westbrook fusion, but I agree with a good bit of your post. He doesn't have the body to absorb contact and finish like Wade, so I'd rank his "slash and score" ability below his, but he'll be able to slash and pass with the best of them in a few seasons I believe. His size and length is going to be a HUGE asset in the league, and when you combine that with his elite athleticism and overall touch and feel for the game, you have a pretty unique combination of tools for the point guard position.
