NBA Comparison: Trenton Hassell

Strengths: Ball-hawking defender with a good jump shot … Great instincts making him highly adept at getting steals. Finished sixth nationally with 2.7 SPG this season and led the nation in steals in the 2011-2012 season … Good catch-and-shoot player. Was a career 36% shooter from behind the arc and most of those came in catch-and-shoot situations … Edwin has good length which makes him the disruptive player that he is and helps him stay in front of his man on the perimeter ... Edwin has good size, length, and athleticism for an NBA shooting guard … Quick guard which helps him get out in transition and defend on the perimeter ... A very unselfish player, Edwin makes good passes, crashes the boards, and makes hustle plays. His game is the kind that will help him transition from college star to NBA role player … Raised his free throw percentage over 10 points from last season to this season and shot 78% from the line this year …

Weaknesses: Streaky offensive player. Is capable of heating up quickly, but can also disappear on the offensive end of the court or miss every shot. Edwin scored in single-digits 11 times this season but he also broke 20 9 times … Primarily a catch-and-shoot scorer. Isn't great at creating his own shot … The main reason why he won conference Defensive Player of the Year is his ability to jump the passing lanes and steal the ball, but this facet of his game will be limited at the next level. He has to avoid being overly aggressive on defense…Has an odd shot release with almost no follow-through…Doesn't really do any one thing on the offensive end at an NBA level. He's a good defender, but it remains to be seen how well his defense translates to the NBA…

Notes: 2014 Big East Defensive Player of the Year and all- Big East Second Team selection…Recorded the most steals in Seton Hall history and the fourth-most in Big East history…

Overall: Edwin is good, aggressive perimeter defender who racks up loads of steals. He has solid range and is a decent scorer on the drive. His translation to the NBA will be helped by his willingness to make unselfish, winning plays and by his great effort on both ends of the court. Edwin will most likely be a second round pick if he's drafted, but he has the potential to be a proto-typical 3-and-D guy off an NBA bench…
