NBA Comparison: Omar Cook

Strengths: A pure, pass-first point guard, Machado's best attribute is his incredible floor vision both in the half court and transition ... The game just slows down for Machado, whose excellent anticipation as a passer meshes with his roving peripheral vision ... Works the drive and dish game effectively, hitting his shooters in rhythm on the perimeter and cutters in stride through the lane ... Good athlete, not great, with a quick first step and a nice burst off the dribble hesitation and over screens ... Shows nice touch on finesse shots over the interior line of defense ... Improved his 3pt percentage to 40% as a senior, showing fluent mechanics and a sense of comfort shooting both off the dribble and the catch ... Excellent control and decision-making running the break ... Shows a strong ability to protect the ball (3-1 a/to ratio) ...

Weaknesses: Machado is not an overwhelming athlete or speed merchant, which is generally required for most 6'1 average sized point guards ... Lacks explosion, which will make finishing around the rim a challenge at the next level ... Won't get you a ton of points as a scorer (only scored over 20 once all season) ... He's vulnerable defending in isolation, which will be an issue against stronger and quicker NBA point guards ... Playing in the MAAC, he doesn't face the level of competition of say a Kendall Marshall or Marquis Teague, which could strike fear in the minds of scouts who will be comparing and evaluating...

Overall: Machado leads the nation in assists at over 10 a game... His passing makes himk intriguing but he has some physical limitations that raise question marks about his ability to make the transition ... However with so few pure point guards available, Machado is likely to remain on draft boards throughout the predraft process... His elite quarterback instincts, ability to make teammates better and questionable physical tools give him a shot to be drafted and stick ...
