Rondae Hollis-Jefferson NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-7 - Small Forward - Arizona

An athletic wing who might be the best defender in college ball.

Pros
An elite defender who can guard on the perimeter as well as any prospect out there. Gets very low in his stance and has great lateral movement and very quick hands. Avoids fouls well and is a good shot blocker.

A well built and muscular athlete with great hops and great speed. Attacks the rim well and can throw it down with a lot of power. What sets him apart is his combination of intensity and athleticism. He's a warrior.

A very heady player who understands spacing well and is always looking to get teammates involved. Plays to win.

Cons
Not a top level shooter or scorer and isn't likely to be a #1 option on offense at the NBA level.

Needs to tighten up his handles and but in a lot of work on his perimeter game.  He's only an average free throw shooter.

Projection: lottery pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
