Could the Nation's leading scorer go in the 1st round?
Not the prettiest game but he can put the ball in the hoop.
Deadly mid range pull up where can stop and pop in a dime and is automatic. Shooting form looks real good off the dribble (not so much off the catch and shoot) though could lack NBA range. Knows how to draw contact, more effective on the break. Good floater. Good height for a PG at 6'3 but lacks bulk at 180lbs. Really just average in a lot of aspects in his game, passing, athleticism, handles for a PG. etc
So, what do you think about Erick Green? Could he sneak in the first round?
He looked pretty terrible to me last night. He looks like a selfish chucker, a score first point guard that doesn't set his teammates up well. He reminds me of Terrell Stoglin from last year in terms of playing style, and you see where that got him. But I do believe Green's a slightly better prospect that may be a mid to late 2nd round pick.
Terell Stoglin never played with as much poise as Erick Green.
Erick Green is not a chuker. Eric Green has PG skills.
for a guy like Green....you wont really learn too much about him in college that we dont already know, but the combine could do wonders for his stock
The question i have with him would be Does he make others better? I'm not sure he is really a pg. But he does have good size and athleticism.
Green has the potential to be a solid back up guard in the league. He isn't the most athletic guy, and might struggle defending the quicker guards. He's a solid scorer, but not the type of scorer that will be able to get off his shot at anytime he wants. He has ideal size for a combo guard, and I can see him playing a few minutes at the 1, but I think he will have the most success being a scorer with the second unit. If a team is comfortable taking a rotation player late in the first round, Green may be selected.
