Summary: With a fairly weak crop of seniors in the 2011 NBA Draft class, David Lighty will almost certainly find himself being drafted in the second round. He does not have the upside that is often coveted in the NBA Draft since he is a fifth-year senior, but Lighty does have experience and a proven record of being a winner and hard-nosed player.
Player Comparison: Keith Bogans. Bogans has made a living in the NBA because of his intangibles and ability to defend. Lighty is a capable offensive player but will find a spot in the NBA because of his defensive prowess and value as a role player.
