Draft Notes

Jalen Suggs is a natural point guard with good size, great vision and excellent quickness. He plays with good balance, operates within the flow of the game and also has the ability to take over when needed. At this point he’s the #1 PG in his class and it’ll be fun to watch him develop his game over the coming years.

Suggs is a legit 5 star talent who possesses good size and high end athleticism to go along with a smooth game. He’s lightening quick with the ball and is a strong, well built athlete. He’s an aggressive driver who takes advantage of any crease in the defense and can get to the cup in a hurry.

Jalen is a very heady player who makes the right play and is a team first guy. Has an advanced understanding of the game for a young guard and can be like a coach on the floor.

Suggs has a smooth jumper with a nice quick release and good range. As with the rest of his game, he makes his jumper look effortless.

Has a quick first step and is a bouncy athlete who can play above the rim. Very fast in the open court, Suggs can put a ton of pressure on the defense with his transition game and open court ability.

Has versatility on both ends of the floor and can play off the ball without losing his effectiveness.

Needs to get stronger. Doesn’t have great length for size.

Needs to get more consistent with his three point shot.
