Jahlil Okafor – 6’11, 272 lbs. Center (Duke, Fr.)

Strengths: One of the most dominant and skilled low-post presences college basketball has ever seen. A winner at every level with a skill set that will immediately translate to serious production. Unselfish, good teammate. Embraces and thrives off of contact. A solid rebounder when he really is focused on it.

Weaknesses: Not much of a threat offensively outside of the paint. Lateral movement, especially when helping in pick-and-rolls. Doesn’t play above the rim much. Free throw shooting. Rim protection.
