Summary: Leuer is an extremely versatile power forward for someone his size. Some scouts absolutely love his skill level and believe he is a first-round lock. Others are not quite as sold. Leuer has shown steady improvement during his time at Wisconsin and had a great summer with the USA Select team in which he drew rave reviews. If he can prove to be a more dominating player during his senior season, there is no reason to think he does not get numerous first-round looks.
Player Comparison: Ryan Anderson. Despite being 6-10, Anderson relies more on his perimeter game at the next level which is something Leuer should be able to take advantage of as well. Both players have more finesse games for the power forward position, but their versatility is what allows them to stand out.
While we greatly differ on prospect rankings, something that should be assumed this early in the process, I see great thought was put into each pick and they all make sense when looked at through your perspective on the players. Great job!
Out of sheer boredom and the upcoming NBA draft has gotten me itching to make a new mock draft. Of course the NFL draft is a whole lot less predictable than the NBA draft, but also provides more success stories than the NBA draft. Again, I used schedules to determine each team's records and if you get upset with me just remember it's June and a whole lot can change by next April.
