2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jerome Jordan


Position: Center

Size: 7-1, 245

School: Tulsa, Senior


Strengths:
  • Combination of size and length
  • Conference USA's all-time blocks leader
  • Handling double teams in the post
  • Great use of the hook shot
  • Soft touch around the basket
  • Can hit a short turnaround jumper
  • Doesn't try to do too much; knows his limitations



    Weaknesses:
  • "A gentle giant" who needs to become more aggressive
  • Needs to get stronger especially his lower body
  • Athleticism
  • Lateral quickness on defense
  • Face-up game

    Summary: Jordan had a solid collegiate career at Tulsa, breaking the Conference USA record for career blocked shots. His size is his best attribute which will give him a chance to stick in the NBA. He projects as a bubble first-round pick because he's probably nothing more than a career backup.

    Player Comparison: Tony Battie. Battie certainly didn't live up to his billing as the fifth-overall pick in the 1997 NBA Draft, but made a career in the NBA due to his size and ability to defend the center position. If Jordan is going to stick in the league, he will have to do the same since his overall game is somewhat limitied like Battie.
