NBA Comparison: CJ McCollum

Strengths: A talented offensive player, Hanlan has shown a lot of promise early in his college career ... With his superior scoring and passing abilities, Hanlan can play both guard positions ... Hanlan gets his points in a variety of ways, be it off of dribble penetration, mid-range pull-ups, or the outside shot ... He has excellent "gear-shifting" ability and a quick first step. Burns a lot of defenders who try to guard him on the perimeter ... Can drive to the right or the left ... Great at finding holes in the defense and exploiting them to get to the basket ... Hanlan shows flashes of being a very gifted passer. Once he penetrates to the hoop, he can either finish with great consistency, make a quick pass right into the hands of an open big man, or kick the ball outside to an open shooter ... Hanlan can stop on a dime. His pull-up and step-back jumpers are highly efficient ... Has a good floater once he gets in the lane ... Shoots a career 40% from three point land, forcing defenders to respect him on the perimeter ... Excellent on the pick-and-roll ... Draws a lot of fouls. Has drawn 9.5 fouls per game to start the 2013-2014 season and is shooting 83% at the stripe ... Has a high shot release which is difficult to block ... Good point guard size (6'3") and excellent length with a 6'5 wingspan ...

Weaknesses: Needs to improve on defense ... Fundamentally poor perimeter defender ... Doesn't always fight through screens ... His defensive intensity drops when he's guarding off the ball...As a point guard, doesn't always look to pass. His assist-to-turnover ratio in 2012-2013 was just over 1 even ... Still needs to become more of a facilitator to be comsidered a true PG and not just a combo guard ... Needs to add strength to his 6'3", 185 lb. frame ... For being so quick, doesn't get a lot of steals ... The Eagles are 18-21 with Hanlan and they have struggled out of the gate in 2013. Granted this is a team that overachieved from where they were projected to finish ... Occasionally tries to do too much on offense, as evidenced by over-dribbling and some questionable shots ...

Notes: Measured 6'3.5 (in shoes) 182 lbs, with a 6'5 wingspan at the 2013 Nike Guard Skills Academy ... Named the ACC Freshman of the Year last season, as well as a freshman All-American and an All-ACC Honorable Mention...Is older than most of his classmates, as he turns 21 in February...Scored 38 against Florida Atlantic in the fourth game of BC's season...

Overall: Hanlan is a naturally gifted offensive player who can score in a variety of ways and is learning to be a better creator for his teammates. His defense needs work (and more effort) and he needs to lead his team to more key victories, but he is definitely a first-round talent, even in this year's loaded draft ...
