NBA Comparison: Damien Wilkins

Strengths: Powerful shooting guard with relentless/fearless nature ... Consistently attacks the paint seeking out contact ... Finishes strong and absorbs a bump ... Uses his left hand well to finish ... Makes a living at the free throw stripe attempting over 7 per game as a Senior ... Extremely efficient at the line as well converting 83% ... FG% increased in each of his four years ... Has demonstrated solid fundamentals on his jump shot with significant range ... Shot 37% from three last season ... Appears fairly comfortable in the post, taking advantage of his size and strength ... Dedicated worker on the defensive end ... Showed his ability to defend the ball in Marquette's pressure man to man scheme ... Excellent rebounder for a guard (5 per game for his career). Always around the ball on the offensive glass.

Weaknesses: His athletic ability will come into question for the next level ... Lack of explosion off the floor and elevation on his jumper are serious detriments to his game ... Ball handling must improve, especially when dribbling left ... Can be turnover prone at times, in large part to over-aggression and dribbling into waiting traffic ... Often attacks with his head down, perhaps as a result of lack of comfort with his handle ... Quickness is only adequate ... Has difficulty beating his man off the dribble- Relied on his power to get by defenders at the collegiate level.
