Draft Notes

A fast, agile big man with an advanced skill set. Mobley is a coordinated athlete with great length and a lot of upside. He’s got a skinny frame and will have to get a lot stronger but shows elite level upside. He’d be a no.1 overall pick in a lot of drafts but might fall to 2 or 3 in this loaded class.

  • Has length and size to go along with excellent coordination
  • Mobley has an advanced offensive game for young PF/C with a smooth shooting stroke and good range
  • Can handle the ball in the open court and shows signs of developing some small forward skills
  • Can make plays in transition, showing good hands and a nice touch around the rim
  • An above the rim player who looks to dunk everything in close
  • Has great timing as a shot blocker, allowing the offensive player to jump first and playing with great positioning
  • Has quick reflexes and good defensive instincts
  • Rebounds both ends of the floor and does a good job of crashing the offensive glass
  • High IQ on the floor and in the classroom
  • Has shown a rapid rate of improvement and has a ton more upside
  • Is still very skinny and lacks strength and power
  • Doesn’t have a frame that is likely to add a ton of weight and will probably always be more of a finesse player than a true power player

Why Evan should go no.1


Comparisons

  • Built like a taller Chris Bosh – long and skinny – and has some of the same skills but is more of rim protector at this stage.
  • LaMarcus Aldridge but with better mobility, agility and open court speed.
