Joseph Young – 6’2, 178 lbs. Shooting Guard (Oregon, Sr.)

Strengths: One of the most prolific scorers in basketball over the last three seasons. Deep range on his jump shot. Difficult to contain off the dribble. Quick.

Weaknesses: Too thin. Undersized for a shooting guard, may end up having to transition into being a point guard in order to truly stick, although he’ll always be a scorer first and foremost.

NBA Comparison: Monta Ellis

Draft range projection: Mid-to-late second round
