Kenneth Faried PF
22 years old, Senior
6’7 1/2 225lbs
2011 stats: 35 games, 17.3 ppg, 14.5 rpg, 2.3 bpg, 1.9 spg, 62% FG, 57% FT
Prediction: Mid to late first round
Strengths: Excellent rebounder, best in the draft. Attacks the offensive glass with a passion. Is a very good defender, mobile enough to guard multiple positions and the next level. He averaged over 2 blocks per game and almost 2 steals a game. Very explosive athlete and is quick off the floor. His ability to get of off the floor for a 2nd and 3rd jump is what makes him such a great rebounder and shot blocker. He has very long arm(7 ft wingspan) for a player his size. Has a chance to be an elite defender and rebounder in the NBA.
Weaknesses: Is very limited offensively, has no go to moves in the post and no face up game. At his size, he will be an undersized PF and might play some SF and he needs to work on plenty to become an offensive option in the NBA. Has bad form on his jump shot, and due to his ability on the O-boards he gets to the foul line a lot but only shoots 57% from the line. Needs to work on his touch finishing at the hoop.
