2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Craig Brackins


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 230

School: Iowa State, Junior


Strengths:
  • Inside/outside threat
  • Nice face-up game
  • Good three-point shooter for a big
  • Can put the ball on the deck for a couple dribbles and get to the basket, especially against slower defenders
  • Great athleticism for a 6-10 player
  • Runs the floor well
  • Uses his length to his advantage especially on the boards and defensive end



    Weaknesses:
  • Gets out-physicaled by bigger opponents
  • Tends to go for the blocked shot which gets him out of position as a rebounder
  • Too often settles for a fallaway jumper rather than attacking the basket
  • Needs to be more aggressive inside

    Summary: Brackins has to be kicking himself for not turning pro after his sophomore season as his numbers and stock have taken a hit during his junior year. He probably would have been a safe bet for a lottery pick last summer but will fall into the 20s, possibly even the second round of the 2010 NBA Draft that has a lot more talented post players than the 2009 NBA Draft did.

    Player Comparison: Hakim Warrick. Brackins is a tall, but not very physical power forward who seems to feel more comfortable facing the basket or with the ball on the perimeter than banging down low. Warrick was in the same mold because of his slim build and that ultimately hurt his stock when he was drafted. Brackins has the potential to develop into a more physical inside player, but has yet to show that steady aggressiveness at Iowa State.
