20. Moe Harkless 6-8 220lbs Freshman St. John’s SF 19 years old
2011-12 stats: 36.1 mpg, 15.3 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 1.4 bpg, 1.6 spg, 44%fg, 68%ft
Projection: Mid first round, could rise up into the lottery before it’s all said and done.
Strengths: Moe Harkless is a promising prospect with plenty of potential and upside. He has a natural ability to score, while still being raw offensively. He always is around the ball, is a great offensive rebounder, and is good taking guys off the dribble to the basket. He is already a formidable defender and with strength and maturity, he will be even better. If Harkless puts in the work, he could be the steal of the draft 4 years from now.
Weaknesses: Harkless really needs to work on shot selection, I know he pretty much had the green light during his one and only season at St. John’s, but there were times when he shot his team out of games. He also needs to work his his outside shot, if he becomes a more consistent shooter he could be a 20 point scorer in the NBA.
