Thomas Robinson Scouting Report


Thomas Robinson - Power Forward - Kansas

Robinson is an extremely strong and powerful post presence who will be a lottery pick in June. At 6,8 and 240 he is a bull on the block and a tough matchup for any college power forward.

Pros

Massive muscles and great leaping ability make him a terrific rebounder and interior defender.  Gets up high for dunks, rebounds and put-backs and can really score in the paint.  Has a good feel for the game and gets into good position on post-ups.  Shows a big target and catches the ball well.  Has improved a lot over the last two years and looks to have a lot more upside.  Has become a good free throw shooter after struggling from the line earlier in this career.

Cons

Has a somewhat limited game at this point and needs to become a better mid range shooter. Needs to do a better job of avoiding foul trouble and staying in the game.  Not a great shot blocker and is a bit undersized at PF.

Projection: Top 8 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft
