Jerian Grant NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-5 - Point Guard - Notre Dame

A big and exceptionally quick point guard who can also play off the ball.

Pros
Grant is a high level athlete with exceptional quickness and leaping ability. A blur in the open court and can get to the rim in a hurry. A great dunker.

Has nice scoring ability but is also a facilitator, who does a nice job of setting teammates up for open shots. Very good off the dribble and keeps his eyes up.

Gets his hands on a lot of passes, gets a lot of steals and can really put pressure on the ball. Uses his quick feet to his advantage to get good position.

Very solid from the free throw line.

Cons
Is not a knock-down three point shooter and will have to get better to excel at the next level.

Can sometimes rush/force the issue and will have to cut down on mistakes. Needs to tighten up his ball-handling.

Projection: mid first round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
