2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Derrick Favors


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 245

School: Georgia Tech, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Great strength for someone his age
  • Knows how to throw his body around in the paint
  • Outstanding rebounder
  • Length helps him be an effective shot blocker
  • Power game inside on offense
  • Can step out and knock down mid-range jumpers
  • Able to put the ball on the floor for a dribble or two and get to the rim
  • Loaded with upside



    Weaknesses:
  • Needs to become more assertive
  • Still raw on the offensive end
  • Footwork in the post
  • Too easily gets into foul trouble

    Summary: It is all about potential with Favors. He has been effective at Georgia Tech because his size and strength allows him to overpower opponents in the paint resulting in a lot of easy buckets. His overall game is still far from polished and needs a lot of work, but he has shown flashes of just how bright his future could be. He likely won't slip out of the top five of the 2010 NBA Draft this summer.

    Player Comparison: Al Jefferson. Like Jefferson was early in his career, Favors has the ability to overpower opponents in the paint with his great strength and physicality. It took a couple years for Jefferson to reach his potential in the league, and that will likely be the case for Favors.
