D’Angelo Russell – 6’5, 175 lbs. Point Guard (Ohio State, Fr. )

Strengths: Skyrocketed up draft boards after being slightly underrated coming out of high school. Explosive scoring capability, but a quality playmaker as well. Also hits the glass well for a guard. Silky smooth with a great feel for the game. Jump shot has deep range.

Weaknesses: Not an elite athlete. Has to add strength. Concerns about his ability to defend the league’s amazing crop of point guards.
