Effective posting up on the block especially against smaller defenders
Crashes the boards
Very physical for a wing player
Is not afraid of contact
Active on both ends of the floor
Can guard multiple positions
High character guy who was a great leader during his senior season
Must improve three-point shooting
Needs to become more comfortable playing away from the ball
Perimeter defense needs to improve at the next level
Not a great passer
Summary: After underachieving in his first three years at Washington, Pondexter blew up during his senior season, finally showing the potential he had when first arriving in college. There are still concerns about his perimeter game making him a borderline first-round pick. He won't be a star in the NBA, but could develop into a solid role player.
Player Comparison: Trenton Hassell. Hassell is a physical wing known more for the "other things" he does on the floor rather than his ability to score. Hassell has stuck around because he has found his niche with every team he has played on, and Pondexter will have to do the same.
These guys claim to be insiders and super knowledgable yet haven't even updated for the Titans Rams comp pick trade which gives the Rams Rd3(5) pick, which has been official since last Thursday. Talk about phoning it in what a pile of garbage.
Jabrill Peppers would not fit Tampa's defense. He is a safety, but the certain safety that would be compatible with their defense. The Bucs had a guy similar to him in Mark Barron who is now with the Rams, because he did not fit the defense. The Bucs taking Peppers would be dumber than trading up for Roberto Aguayo, IMO.
