Nice mid-range game with ability to knock down the triple
Unorthodox yet very effective turnaround jumper
Variety of low-post moves
One of the few players in college basketball who uses a running hook shot in the lane
Great touch around the basket
Deceptively quick for a guy his size
Goes 100 percent all the time (has a "high motor")
Undersized to be an NBA power forward
Major lack of athleticism and explosiveness
Defense will be a concern on the next level especially on the perimeter
Often times lets his emotions get the best of him
Summary: The Irish senior projects as a second-round pick. He lacks the ideal height and athleticism to be an NBA power forward, but his shooting ability and scoring instincts should give him a chance at the next level. A playoff-caliber team could take a chance and take him in the late first round, but with the 2010 NBA Draft class shaping up to be power forward-heavy, that seems unlikely.
Player Comparison: Glen Davis/Kenny Thomas. Harangody reminds me of Davis in that both players know how to use their big bodies and have soft touches around the basket. Like Davis, Harangody's lack of athleticism will hurt his stock, but he could be a second-round steal. Big Baby does not have the outside shooting ability that Harangody does, which is why I added the Thomas comparison because Thomas is an undersized scoring four with range from the perimeter.
I can't imagine the Pats trading JG for anything less than a 1st round pick. We're talking about a potential starting/franchise QB here who is game ready, looked great when he had the chance to play. He is probably a better prospect than any QB in this draft class. Given the fact that Brady is 39 and nobody knows for sure how many more years he decides to play, the Pats may want to hang onto him for at least another season while he's still under contract. I can't see the Pats giving him up cheap and I can see teams in need of a QB giving up a mid-late 1st round pick. Considering what some teams have given up just to move up a few spots in the draft for a QB, a 1st round pick seems pretty reasonable.
