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.
