1. Ed Davis
2. Tyler Zeller
3. Ty Lawson
**Next season John Henson is better than all 3. One and done. Top 10 pick.
Even though he is struggling this season, I still love Wayne Ellington as a pro prospect. His jumper is just so smooth, and he has the height to play shooting guard in the NBA. His long wingspan will help his defensive transition into the league, he has above-average athleticism, and did I mention his jumper is picture perfect? Worst case scenario, he is a journeyman/role player with a mid-range jumper to die for. His pro development really hinges on his ability to create easy shots at the rim and penetrating defenses. While I'm at it, I have a question for you--what are the worst case scenarios for Davis, Zeller, and Lawson as pros? Do you really believe their basement is better than Ellington's basement? And are their ceilings THAT much higher than Ellington's? I would reconsider putting #22 at 1 or 2 on that list.
Thompson and Danny Green are guys that I like as sleepers that could be better pros than some of the more acclaimed players on the team. Not the most glamorous picks but guys I see sticking and be contributors in the league. Davis and Zeller are also on there way to making some money as well. Not a Ellington guy he's not sorry or anything just doesn't impress me, I will admit that he is a guy that belongs in the league though. Tyler H. will do alright won't be a star but if Mark Madsen is still getting money, I see no reason for Tyler to not play in the league for 10 years and be at least a decent role player. He won't be mistaken for the next coming of Larry Bird, but you can't teach heart and he has loads of it. Always plays hard got to respect that.
Sure Ellington can shoot but he can't do much of anything else. I'm positive he's a much better athlete than JJ Redick but they are still similar players, although Ellington will not be staring in his own Jump shooting video. Lawson can run really fast and make some nice passes but his Jumper is broke. Again, 1. Ed Davis 2. Ty Zeller 3. (Tie) Dee Brown/JJ Redick err Ty Lawson/Wayne Ellington. Yes UConn (Yes We Can).
henson doesnt look one and done to me
Zeller really needs to have more plays ran through him
does he?..i mean there are only so many plays and although he has alot of potential he isnt better then thompson or davis who should be option 1 and 2
I actually think Zeller is better than Davis offensively...He's just a terrible defender which limts his minutes and he's not much of a rebounder....
id say hes more skilled but hes not ready to put it all together just yet. davis is a more productive player although less skilled at this point
He has not impressed me much this season. Every time he gets the ball he looks to that jump hook.. he doesnt pass at all. he also doesnt rebound much for a big man. Davis is way better, no question. Lawson will eventually be a starter in the nba and ellington will be a solid 6th 7th man. Psycho T will be a solid pro and doesnt have the ceiling the other duys do, but he never has. He will be an energy guy off the bench for 10-12 years if he can stay healthy. He may run into some injuries because of how hard he plays
Zeller is quite possibly the fastest 7-footer I've ever seen in college
zeller is still learning. thius is basically his first year. hes shown that he has soem future skill and he puts up good numbers in the time he plays. henson although talented has been very disappointing
