2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Charles Jenkins


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-3, 216

School: Hofstra, Senior


Strengths:
  • Pure scorer
  • Finishing around the rim
  • Creating his own shot
  • Handling contact in the lane
  • Three-point shooting
  • Catch and shoot ability
  • One on one player
  • Distributor
  • Strength
  • Leadership
  • Unselfish
  • Active defender



    Weaknesses:
  • Undersized for a NBA two guard, not a true point guard
  • Will struggle defensively against bigger shooting guards
  • Explosiveness at the rim
  • Slow starter

    Summary: Despite being the sixth-leading scorer in Division I, Charles Jenkins still somewhat flew under the radar this past college basketball season. NBA scouts have not overlooked his ability to score the basketball, and he could end up being a late first-round pick. The biggest concern that could drop him into the second round is his lack of ideal size for an NBA shooting guard.

    Player Comparison: Rodney Stuckey. Rodney Stuckey was an elite scorer at the D-1 level like Jenkins. If Jenkins is going to reach his maximum potential in the NBA, he will have to shed his label as a combo guard and learn to play some point like Stuckey has done with the Pistons. Both guards rely on their strength to overcome their lack of ideal height. The biggest difference between the two is that Jenkins is a much, much better outside shooter than Stuckey.
