Branden Dawson – 6’6, 210 lbs. (Michigan State, Sr.)

Strengths: A high-flyer. Plays hard. Strong defender who may be able to check multiple positons at the next level. Good rebounder.

Weaknesses: Uncertainty over whether he can play small forward, his most ideal position, at the NBA level because of his raw perimeter skills. Didn’t make a single three in college. Free throw shooting.
