What's up with all the hate on the Cowboys. drafting Elliott. Elliott will be taking the Cowboys to the Super Bowl. in 2017. Jerry Jones will be laughing all the way to the bank. Romo finally gets a Ring. guaranteed.
I find it funny that if he hates your favorite teams picks than Walt hates your team. I used to think the same way when he would bash on the Jags for every little thing, but now he is only saying good things about them. Walt does not dislike one team or another he dislikes moves and action. This is one persons opinion and if you don't like it then that sucks. He still has a right to it and will keep posting regardless. *Plus as a bonus if you use facts and reason Walt will look at it from an unbiased angle and see it from your point of view. He did it when I brought up the Jags free agent grade. He even changed it to the more appropriate grade.
Can create his own shot, pull-up off the dribble and hit jumpers
Uses shot fakes and ball fakes to help him create spacing
Capable of putting the ball on the deck and driving to the basket
Quick first step
Able to post up smaller defenders
Length helps him on the boards
Great basketball IQ
Needs to add strength
Lacks ideal lateral quickness to guard NBA small forwards
More of a finesse finisher meaning he gets his shot blocked too often around the basket
Struggles against athletic defenders
Tends to force shots and settle for his jumper too often
Summary: Singler surprised many by deciding to return for his senior season especially after helping lead Duke to the national title. He is a great college player but does not have the ideal traits that translate to a successful pro. However, if Gordon Hayward can go ninth overall and Luke Babbitt 16th overall in this past draft, there is no reason to believe Singler will fall out of the first round and could possibly be taken in the late lottery by a team looking for immediate help.
Player Comparison: Mike Dunleavy. Both Dukies are perimeter-based forwards who rely more on their outside shooting than ability to attack the basket. Dunleavy struggles on the defensive end in the NBA which is likely a similar fate to what Singler can expect since he is not physical enough to bang with fours but not quick enough to guard most threes.
