2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Eric Bledsoe


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-1, 190

School: Kentucky, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Good outside shooter
  • Dangerous off the drive
  • Quick first step
  • Not afraid to take contact when attacking the basket
  • Ability to weave his way through traffic in the lane and get to the rim
  • Lightning quick in the open court
  • Great expolsiveness at the rim for a point guard
  • Pesky on the ball defender
  • Good strength



    Weaknesses:
  • Plays out of control way too often
  • Needs to become more of a floor leader
  • A bit of a hot-head when he gets rattled
  • Streaky three-point shooter

    Summary: Bledsoe lived in the shadows of John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins for most of this season, but has definitely shown signs of being a future NBA point guard. With a weak crop of point guards in the 2010 NBA Draft, Bledsoe would have a realistic shot of being taken in the top 20, possibly as high as the lottery if a team has a serious need for a point guard. However, his stock seems to be all over the place with some "experts" thinking he could fall into the second round. I'd be shocked if that happened.

    Player Comparison: Raymond Felton. Felton is known for his quickness on the floor and play-making abilities which Bledsoe had shown flashes of in his first year in Lexington. Bledsoe can light it up from deep, but just as often goes cold, something Felton has dealt with during his career. Bledsoe is still young and needs to learn the point guard position and I don't think he will make the immediate impact that Felton did in the NBA, but down the line should be a similar player.
