2012 NBA Draft – John Jenkins
John Jenkins – Vanderbilt, Shooting Guard (Jr.)
2011-2012 Statistics: 19.9 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.2 apg
Strengths: As pure of a shooter as this class has to offer. Won’t have any trouble adjusting to deeper three-point line in the NBA. Demands the defenses’ attention even when he doesn’t have the basketball.
Weaknesses: On the small side with below-average athleticism and quickness. Doesn’t bring much else to the table when his shot isn’t falling. Lack of lateral movement will be exposed on defense.
Projection: Late first round to early second round.
NBA Comparison: J.J. Redick/Richard Hamilton
