NBA Draft Player Rankings
5. PF Thomas Robinson (Kansas): The most ripped player in the draft, Robinson showed absurd improvement in his junior year, averaging 10.1 more points and 5.5 more rebounds than in his sophomore year. He also shot 50.5% from the field. One thing that concerns me is that he tends to recklessly heave himself into the lane and rely on his athleticism to finish or draw a foul (sort of in a Russell Westbrook sort of way). I'm not sure if he'll be able to get away with that in the NBA. However, if it doesn't translate, he's still got the tools to adjust become a stud and that earns him No. 5. (PS - there's your No. 5 player getting STUFFED by No. 4)
6. PF Jared Sullinger (Ohio State): Keep in mind, this is assuming he is healthy. One thing that concerns me about Sullinger is that he seemed to be bothered by bigger, more physical defenders (such as Thomas Robinson), and there's a lot of those in the NBA. I thought he played a little too finesse when going up against those guys and got away from his style of ball. However, he's still got a great arsenal of moves on offense and the skill to face up and shoot/drive or back down defenders. He's compared himself to Zach Randolph, a guy who's not athletic but gets the job done. I think he can do that if he stays healthy and if he mans up against physical defenders.
7. PF John Henson (North Carolina): Henson actually reminds me a lot of a poor man's Anthony Davis. Well, I guess more like a middle class man's Anthony Davis. He's long and athletic and plays fantastic defense. Like Davis, he needs to put on some muscle to handle guys like Blake Griffin at the next level. He may not develop into an offensive threat, but I think he could be an important defensive piece on a contending team.
