NBA Comparison: Thomas Robinson

Strengths: Athletic combo forward with an intriguing skill-set ... Runs the court extremely well and is a frequent target for lob passes in transition ... Solid size for either forward position, standing about 6'8" with a long wingspan ... Displays the quickness/versatility to guard multiple positions at the next level ... Blocks a lot of shots (averaging 3.0 per game at the time this profile was written) and creates a lot of turnovers ... Really tough to score against at the college level, and has the potential to be an even better defender with added experience ... Is a relentless rebounder both offensively and defensively ... Already has a 20-20 game under his belt (February 11th at Florida Atlantic) ... Solid scorer as a freshman ... Has become a proficient spot-up shooter out to the college three-point line ... Is quick and decisive in the post ... Faces up well against slower defenders ... Active without the ball ... Creates opportunities for himself by making strong cuts to the basket ... Has solid instincts as a passer ... Plays the game with a lot of passion on both sides of the court ...

Weaknesses: Could be a good small forward or power forward in the future, but has yet to really establish himself as one or the other ... Needs to prove that his shooting numbers this season (45.7% on less than two three-point attempts per game) aren't a fluke ... Looks like he's become more comfortable putting the ball on the floor, but isn't the type to take his defender off the dribble a lot during games ... Too right-handed dependent on drives … Turnover-prone ... Can let his intensity get the best of him at times, which can lead to a lot of mistakes and unnecessary fouls ... Isn't playing against high-caliber competition in the Sun Belt Conference ... Forced to sit out for what would have been his freshman season because of academic issues, though he's reportedly worked very hard to get everything together ...

Overall: Mitchell missed the first nine games of the season but has come back with a vengeance ... He's rebounding, blocking shots and scoring at a high level ... He still needs some all-around polish that comes with experience, but he has lottery-potential whenever he declares ...

Notes: Measured 6'8.5 (in shoes) 236 lbs, with a 7'3 wingspan at the 2012 Amare Stoudemire Skills Academy
