Oakland will either draft Donald Penn's replacement at LT, draft a cornerback, or an inside linebacker with their first pick. Those three priorities are above drafting a running back considering Oakland already drafted a running back this year. And Latavius Murray is just fine
I think they could have drafted quite a bit better. Maybe looked @ Thompson from BSU at safety. I think anyone that passed on Booker missed a chance on a RB talent steal. Alexander was rated higher than drafted, but guard seems to have a low value on a lot of teams. Cook being drafted wasn`t a horrible pick in terms of the position & need. I just think they should have waited 1 year to grab a QB prospect. I hope Cook works out, but you could almost drop each player by one round for a better value. Joseph was going late 2nd round to many scouts. The way WAS drafted I don`t think they would have taken him @ pick 22.
Sweet stroke with a high release that makes it difficult to block
Great catch and shooter
Nice turnaround jump shot
Moves well without the ball
Can take advantage of smaller defenders by posting them up
Good court vision
High basketball IQ
Outstanding character guy
Mr. Clutch in late-game pressure situations
Lateral quickness on defense
Not great at attacking the rim off the bounce
Needs to become a better handler
Summary: Butler capped off an outstanding career at West Virginia with a stellar senior season. His basketball IQ is off the charts, he thrives in the big-pressure situations, and can shoot it from deep. However, a lack of athleticism and torn ACL suffered in the Final Four pretty much guarantees he will be a second-round pick.
Player Comparison: Sasha Pavlovic. Pavlovic overcame his lack of athleticism and stayed in the NBA due to his outside shot. Butler will need to follow suit if he hopes to make a career in the NBA.
