While your brief analysis of the Panther's Oline has a lot of truth to it, I'm not sure it's yet fair to say that their is a problem in the 2ndary. The rooks are playing pretty well and definitely aren't the problem. Another is that they can't get a pass rush because the QBs are having success throwing the ball for short, quick, Brady esque passes, but when throwing deeper, the interior rush at least is getting there, and the corners have been impressing. While they are no Norman at this point, I can say that they are one of the few bright spots so far. The main problem is that the Oline can't block, and special teams can't tackle.
Knows how to use his strength when attacking the basket
Great play-making abilities
Good rebounder for a wing player
Shot selection is questionable at times
Very inconsistent from beyond the arc
Needs to make more of a commitment on the defensive end
Dribbles too much in one-on-one situations
Tends to gets rattled if things aren't going his way during the course of a game
Stands around too much on offense if the ball isn't in his hands
Summary: Nicknamed "Born Ready," Stephenson failed to live up to the lofty expectations put on him when he arrived at Cincy. Early in the season, I had him as a late-lottery pick based on his natural ability and potential, but he just didn't put it all together in his freshman year as he still has plenty of maturing to do both mentally and as a player. He is reportedly leaning toward returning to school and that would be the wise decision since he would have no guarantee of being a first-round pick.
Player Comparison: Isaiah Rider Rider was a tremendous natural talent who just never truly panned up in the NBA. Stephenson is loaded with natural ability and like Rider, uses it like a switch where he can seemingly turn his game "on" or "off" in the blink of the eye. Three-point shooting was never a strength of Rider's and it's something Stephenson needs to work on before he takes the step to the next level.
