Dennis Schroeder

Shooting up the draft boards, just a little over a month ago nobody knew about him, now he's slotted as a lottery pick and the combine hasn't even came yet, where he is likely to test out very very well.

How high can he go?

Is it a possibility he could be the first PG taken?

He could be a good fit for a team that needs a distributor, like Sacramento,Utah or New Orleans. It just depends on what happens with the lottery.

He could leap-frog the other PGs if he performs well enough in workouts, but I'd still take Myck Kabongo as a pass-first PG before I'd take Schroeder.

What you mean?

He's already rated as the 3rd best PG in this draft, a lottery pick, he's already leap frogged the other PG's as just a month ago he wasn't even an NBA prospect here in the states.

If he performs well in the workouts and combine he could pass up McCollum and possibly Burke....it's a longshot but combines and workouts work out really well for an relatively uknown prospect such as Schroeder if they happen to do very well.

By "the other PGs" I meant

By "the other PGs" I meant Burke primarily. Hard to put him above him there.

And as far as Myck Kabongo goes, that's just my opinion on how good I feel Kabongo is as a pass-first guy, not a comment on where he'll be drafted.

I'm still not sure if

I'm still not sure if Schröder will ever be an impact player in the league but he really looks promosing right now. I like the relaxed way of how he plays the point and isn't rushing anything. I'm very excited to see him in the combine and in workouts against other guards.

Honestly, his fluidity,

Honestly, his fluidity, athleticism, size, quickness, vision and skillset will have scouts drooling, and the mystique (not being exposed on domestic soils) will certainly play a part. Some Jrue Holliday, some Brandon Jennings, a splash of Rondo, and a pinch of John Wall. Thats not indicative of how good he'll be, but his upside is definitely there.

Nothing is a certainty

Nothing is a certainty in this draft let alone the Point Guard position, If he can play Burke evenly on top of his already documented impressive measurements then Schroder could be considered as the possible top PG prospect nonetheless if he impresses scouts enough he will be a top ten pick. People have been calling Giannis Adetokoubo this year's Biyombo but it's looking like it's this guy.

There are certainly

There are certainly similarities between Dennis and Bismack given they both used the Hoop Summit as a stepping stone into the NBA, but I think Dennis has a better chance of panning out, you know what you're getting with guards more than you do with big guys.

I love what I see in Schroder

I love what I see in Schroder but we don't have much video to view, love his 6'7 wingspan (Kabongo has same , I'd love to see the Jazz get Schroder but Kabongo may be just as good. It will be interesting to see how they do in workouts, love to see them go head to head. Larkin is short but offensively he is ahead of both Schroder and Kabongo, defensively though he could be a liability.

Does anyone else see a more

Does anyone else see a more passive not as explosive(leaping wise) Rodrigue Beaubois in Schroeder?

I think the closest

I think the closest comparison based on what we've seen would be Roddy Beaubois who still we aren't sure what he can be since he's never healthy, but he seems to be very similar. Both 6-2", Beaubois has 15 pounds on Schroeder right now, both athletic and good defensive potential.
