The 49ers picks are laughable. They need O-Line and Pass rush help badly. No way they pick Tight End and Runningback so early when they have Celek, McDonald, Bell as more than serviceable and Hyde, Draughn, Davis at RB.
Does a great job of getting his hand in passing lanes
Incredible basketball IQ
Lacks ideal athleticism for an NBA two guard
Played entirely in a 2-3 zone so doesn't have much man-to-man experience on defense
Summary: Known primarily as a three-point assassin during his career at Syracuse, Rautins developed into a solid all-around player which makes him an interesting prospect. A team that is need of an intelligent sharpshooter might take a chance on him in the second round. His lack of ideal athleticism limits his potential effectiveness at the next level but I still think he could be a valuable bench player for some team.
Player Comparison: Anthony Parker. Parker has made a living in the NBA due to his three-point shooting and defensive abilities which have allowed him to be a valuable role player. Rautins will need to be a similar player if he has any hopes of playing in the NBA. Parker actually spent a few years overseas before returning to the NBA which might be a path Rautins will also have to take.
