Overview
A fast-developing big man with an advanced skill set. Mobley is a coordinated athlete with great length and a lot of upside. Has a skinny frame and will have to get a lot stronger but shows a lot of promise and the potential to be a first round pick in a few years.

Strengths
  • Has length and size to go along with excellent coordination
  • Has an advanced offensive game for young PF/C with a smooth shooting stroke and good range
  • Can handle the ball in the open court and shows signs of developing some small forward skills
  • Can make plays in transition, showing good hands and a nice touch around the rim
  • An above the rim player who looks to dunk everything in close
  • Has great timing as a shot blocker, allowing the offensive player to jump first and playing with great positioning
  • Has quick reflexes and good defensive instincts
  • Rebounds both ends of the floor and does a good job of crashing the offensive glass
  • High IQ on the floor and in the classroom
  • Has shown a rapid rate of improvement and has a ton more upside
Weaknesses
  • Is still very skinny and lacks strength and power
  • Doesn't have a frame that is likely to add a ton of weight and will probably always be more of a finesse player than a true power player
Comparisons
  • Built like Chris Bosh - long and skinny - and has some of the same skills but is more of rim protector at this stage
Projection: first round pick in the 2021 NBA Draft
