So what if Zeke is a rookie? And they didn't draft him #4 overall, given that he's a prototype 3-down back, to have him in a timeshare with Morris or McFadden. Behind that line, coupled with his skills as a runner, receiver, and pass blocker, there's no way he should fall past the first round.

Decision-making as he sometimes tries to be too much of a point guard-type with his passes
All-around offensive game needs to be polished

Summary: Garcia blew up early on for Seattle University in his first year of Division I college hoops, earning him a lot of buzz as a potential first-round pick. However, as the season wore on, Garcia struggled to show the dominance he displayed early in the 2009-2010 season. Due to his size, athleticism and potential, he will likely get several second-round looks but will need to groom his game before he can crack an NBA rotation.
Player Comparison: Earl Clark. Garcia reminds me of Clark in that he is a tremendous athlete for someone his size. Both players are at their best when attacking the basket due to their ability to take defenders off the dribble and finish with authority at the rim. Clark entered the league with a ton of upside and like Garcia, who will need to polish his outside shot before he is a consistent contributor at the next level.
