2013 NBA Draft – Nerlens Noel
Nerlens Noel – Kentucky, Power Forward (Fr.)
Strengths: A defensive standout who can do it all on that end of the court, especially protect the rim. Runs the floor well for a big man. Active rebounder with an improving feel for the game offensively.
Weaknesses: Currently recovering from a torn ACL that ended his season and may keep him out for some of his rookie season. Needs to add strength. Undeveloped offensively. Leaves too many points at the free throw line.
Projection: Top ten.
NBA Comparisons: Serge Ibaka/Larry Sanders
