My Big Board (Top 90)
Here's my final big board before Thursday's draft. Complete with my opinion of each player's strengths and weaknesses. These are way less formal than a scouting report, so strengths/weaknesses may seem a little vague (i.e. "Strength: Shooting" as opposed to "Strength: Quick release and good follow through"). What do you think about where guys are ranked? Do I have somebody way too high? Anybody too low? Who's missing that should at least be in the Top 90? Also, I put a lot of time into this, but there are possibly some errors in the formatting, if there are typos, numbers aren't in correct order or links don't work, please let me know either here or in the comments on the page. Thanks!
I like it a lot actually. A few things I would personally change is literally switch Stauskas and Saric; having watched ABA League all season Nurkic is nowhere near the player Saric is at this juncture. Also Elfrid Payton is coming out of nowhere and really impressing the scouts lately; he could go as high as 8 to the Kings, so I would consider putting him a bit higher on your big board. Great big board!
After the top 7 or 8, I think there are a lot of directions you can go. I have Nurkic high for his potential more than his immediate impact ability, although I think both he and Saric will have their fates determined by the situation they get drafted into. If Payton can even become an average shooter, he's going to be really good.
I probably wouldn't include Niels Giffey in my top 250 but outside of that it looks alright.
2nd round guys go, I want someone with one repeatable, elite skill. He's a knockdown shooter, you can fix the other areas of his game enough to maybe make him useful. Big maybe, but at that point, any guy you look at is a huge maybe and is down that low for a reason.
