Has shown steady improvement and will continue to get better
Very, very thin; must get stronger
Not at all pysical; gets pushed around in the paint
Face-up game is still raw and needs grooming
Awful free throw shooter
Sometimes tries to be too much of a finese finisher
Summary: Because of his combination of length and athleticism for someone 6-10, Henson has been on the NBA radar since arriving at North Carolina. He is a very intriguing prospect, but his rail thin frame is a serious concern as he will have to try and battle grown men in the post on a nightly basis. If he declares for the 2011 NBA Draft, he still a likely mid-first-round pick based on potential alone. I just do not think he can be a regular contributor in the league until he adds some muscle or becomes a better outside shooter.
Player Comparison: JaVale McGee/Hakim Warrick. This is a tough one since Henson is such a rare prospect. Henson is similar to McGee in their length, athleticism and shot blocking ability, but is about 40 pounds lighter than the Wizard center. That is where the Warrick comparison comes in because Warrick is also lengthy and athletic, but has a more similar frame and offensive ability as Henson.
I like how everyone says that Ameer Abdullah can't say healthy...he played in every game as a rookie and barely missed any time in college. So yes, he was hurt this year, but that doesn't mean he "can't stay healthy".
Walt, at what point are you going to realize that Jerry is no longer calling the shots, and idiotic "splash" type 1st rd picks aren't a thing anymore? Jabrill is a below average defensive player, who does not fit Marinelli's scheme at all. Time to scrap this mock and start over. With who you have on the board at 28, John Ross, Takkarist McKinley, or even Teez Tobr would be a better pick to mock there.
