NBA Comparison: Steve Novak/Brian Cook

Strengths: Great shooting ability for a player his size ... Has good length (6'10" with 7'2" wingspan) ... Effective pick-and-pop player ... His three-point percentage (40.5%) was among the best in the nation last season ... Very good on the catch-and-shoot. Extremely fluid motion ... Already a solid shot-blocker (2.2 blocks per 40 minutes) ... Had a good showing at the pre-draft combine, particularly in the perimeter shooting test, where he 72% of his shots, one of the best performances of all players in attendance ... Shows flashes of soft touch around the rim, which he displayed in higher volume in high school ... Has a fairly big frame and the potential to add strength ... Has the deceptive ability to get by power forwards defending him on the perimeter ... At age 19, Jerrett still has plenty of time to develop into the player he was expected to be after being a top 10 recruit coming out of high school ...

Weaknesses: Jerrett failed to prove that he was more than a mediocre player at the college level, leading to massive doubts about his NBA readiness ... Has an extremely limited offensive game, as there is little he can do at this point aside from spot-up shooting ... Statistically, a very poor rebounder for his height. One of the worst rebounding big men in this draft...Very awkward and unathletic. Jerrett lumbers up and down the court and has "duck feet" ... Has no inside game, which is alarming for a player of his height and bulk ... Has a 10.05% body fat, one of the highest recorded at the combine ... Incredibly inefficient in college last season. Shot 41.3% on 2-pointers last season, an atrocious number for a big man ...Very limited athleticism, as his leaping ability and lateral quickness will both limit him at the next level ... Needs to hit the weights to fill out his frame so he can bang down low with NBA big men ... Awkward body shape. Has very high hips and relatively thin legs, giving him a very high (and disadvantageous) center of gravity ... Needs to make cuts with more assertiveness ... Questions still surround his decision to enter the draft after such a subpar season at Arizona last year ...

Overall: Jerrett is currently one of the most undeveloped prospects in this draft, but he is already an excellent shooter and he showed great promise coming out of high school ... He should get a chance in the NBA and, if a team is willing to give him a few years to develop, he could turn into a very serviceable stretch 4 down the road ..,
Notes: Measured 6'10 (in shoes) 220 lbs, with a 7'1 wingspan at the 2011 LeBron James Skills Academy.
