2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jimmer Fredette


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-2, 190

School: BYU, Senior


Strengths:
  • Lights out shooter
  • Limitless range
  • Catch and shoot ability
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Almost automatic at the free throw line
  • Creative scorer
  • Knows how to use his body when driving
  • Moves well off the ball
  • Outstanding use of shot fakes to create space
  • Dangerous in the pick and roll
  • Court vision
  • Solid strength and toughness





    Weaknesses:
  • Athleticism
  • Struggles defensively against quicker guards
  • Must become a better ball handler to run the point in the NBA
  • Too often gets caught leaving his feet without knowing where the ball is going

    Summary: Fredette is an elite scorer at the college level and has an outside shot that all NBA general managers covet. However, his combo guard status and lack of great athleticism hurts his status. When the draft is all said and done, I think he ends up going late in the first round depending on how many underclassmen declare. If he slips to the second round, he could be one heck of a steal if he finds his role at the next level.

    Player Comparison: Mo Williams Williams is not a great athlete by NBA standards which is why he ended up being a second-round pick. He has put together a successful NBA career due to his craftiness as a scorer and that is what allows Fredette to excel.
