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
Strong finisher at the rim
Runs the floor well especially when getting back on defense
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.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
