Frank Jackson NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-4 - Combo Guard - Duke

A high flying and well built guard who can light it up from outside.

Pros
Jackson is a powerful and explosive player with a great combination of leaping ability, quickness and high skill level.

He gets great elevation on his jumper and has a beautiful stroke from three point range.

Jackson is very quick with the dribble and has a vast array of moves to get to the rim. His first step and overall athleticism set him apart from most players and he's already got the strength to hold his own at the NBA level.

Cons
He's not a pure lead guard, in terms of being a pass-first player and he has room for improvement with finding teammates off the bounce.

Comparisons
Chauncey Billups

Projection: lottery to mid first round pick in the 2017 or 2018 NBA Draft
