Summary: Iman Shumpert possesses everything physical trait you would want in a NBA guard - size, athleticism, quickness and strength. However, he does not have a true position and has a poor outside shot, which hurts his stock. He figures to be a second-round pick, but could slip into the late first round.
Player Comparison: A much less dominant Tyreke Evans. Obviously this is a very loosed base comparison but Shumpert has some of the same traits as Evans; he is a bigger guard who can player either the one or the two. Shumpert is not a great shooter and tends to be out of control which are also weaknesses for Evans. Shumpert will never reach Evans' success level because of Evans' ability to almost effortlessly get to the basket, hense the "much less dominant Tyreke Evans."
@Steel Willy The funny thing is, OLB, S, and CB entered free agency as bigger needs than DL, RB, and WR and in free agency, DL, RB, and WR depth were all added while out of OLB, S, and CB, depth was added to only one of those positions, yet Walt ignores CB, S, and OLB but gives them RB, WR, and DL. Another funny thing is offense is the stronger unit, yet the majority of the picks for Pittsburgh is offensive players. Not to mention, Buddha Baker and Derek Rivers being available at pick 62, and Walt having Pittsburgh pass on both is insanity
I like the change for the lions in round 1, adoree jackson had to go. DT from Auburn is a need, not as pressing as others (DE, LB, CB) but with him being a pass rusher it kinda makes up for it. RB and TE round 3 and 4? I don't hate it but it sounds more Martin Mayhew than Bob Quinn. I thin the run on defense in 4 out of the first 5 picks.... The Kareem Hunt pick I like but hopefully later than a 3
