Summary: Bouldin is a tough one to figure out. On one hand, he has a nice all-around game with his shooting and passing abilities, good strength, and tremendous intelligence on the floor. On the other hand, he just lacks the ideal athleticism to be a real threat as an NBA two guard. I think he is a safe bet to be a second-round pick and could be a potential steal.
Player Comparison: Wesley Matthews. As a Marquette grad and die-hard fan, I think this one makes sense. Matthews went undrafted but found the ideal fit by working his way onto the Jazz roster and eventually into a starting role. I think Bouldin could follow that blueprint. Both players are intelligent, physical two guards, who can shoot the rock but lack the ideal quickness for the next level. Bouldin is a better ball-handler and could be a great steal just like Matthews has been for Utah.
As a Jags fan, I was glad to see him slide to the second rd. My only question would be "will San Diego's 2nd and 3rd Rd picks be far superior to what Jax selected?" I hope not, but only time will tell.
