Patric Young Scouting Report

6,9 - Power Forward - Florida

A prototypical power forward with very good athleticism. A powerful player who has not progressed as well as we had hoped and now looks like a second rounder.

Pros

Perfect build for the power forward position with broad shoulders, strong arms and great overall strength. Great leaper who elevates very quickly and plays above the rim. Great dunker and is very good at getting put back and tip in buckets.

Has the potential to become a very solid rebounder and is a good low block defender.  Provides good help defense and seems to be committed to playing the game the right way.  Runs the floor very well and shows good hustle.

Cons

Not a great shot blocker and needs to learn better timing and develop a feel for projecting the rim.  Also needs to grab more rebounds, as he has all the tools to be a double digit rebounder.  Ideally would be an inch or two taller but makes up for it with great strength and explosiveness.

Having a down year and has not developed as much as expected.

Projection: second round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft
