2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Ed Davis


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 215

School: North Carolina, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Very active on both ends of the floor
  • Good length allows him to be an effective rebounder and shot-blocker
  • Nice touch around the basket
  • Has shown the ability to knock down mid-range jumpers
  • Solid athleticism
  • Strong finisher at the rim
  • Runs the floor well especially when getting back on defense



    Weaknesses:
  • Offensive game is still a work in progress
  • Struggles at the free-throw line
  • Needs to become stronger if he is going to bang down low in the NBA
  • Tends to get into foul trouble due to being an over-agressive shot-blocker
  • Needs to be more aggressive on the offensive end

    Summary: Davis' sophomore season came to an end prematurely due to an injury to his shooting wrist. Davis is a top-10 prospect depsite the fact that he did not blow up this season like most people were expecting. The injury throws a wrench into his decision to turn pro or return for his junior season. I am 50/50 on which decision he will make but it may be hard for him to pass up being a top-10 pick.

    Player Comparison: Al Horford. Horford and Davis seem to be headed down similar paths. Much like Davis, Horford was a role player as a freshman known for his rebounding and shot-blocking abilities. When Horford stepped into the starting lineup, his game progressed to the point where he was one of the more effective big men in the country. Davis is expected to make that leap in his sophomore season just as Horford did.
