Shelvin Mack PG/SG
22 years old, Junior
2011 stats: 16 ppg, 3.4 apg, 4.5 rpg, 40% FG, 35% 3pt FG
Prediction: End of first round to early second
Strengths: Shelvin Mack is a combo guard with great scoring ability. He does a good job of using his strong frame to fend off defenders and get clean looks. Was asked to score more this season, with Gordon Heyward leaving school early for the NBA and led Butler back to a 2nd consecutive NCAA title game. He is an aggressive defender, who does a great job staying in front of his assignment.
Weaknesses: Is more of a 2-guard then a pure point. While he had one of the highest vertical jumps at the draft combine, it hasn’t translated on the court as he isnt the move explosive finisher at the rim. Isn’t the type of player who will blow right by you. Needs to cut down on the turnovers if he plans to be depended on playing the point.
