2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jacob Pullen


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-0, 200

School: Kansas State, Senior


Strengths:
  • Outside shooting
  • NBA range and beyond
  • Catch and shoot ability
  • Pull-up jump shot
  • Moves well away from the ball
  • Effective in the pick and roll
  • Thrives in the big moment
  • Pesky on-the-ball defender
  • Toughness



    Weaknesses:
  • Must re-learn the point guard position after playing off the ball the past two years
  • Not a great playmaker in terms of setting up his teammates
  • Taking defenders off the dribble and attacking to the basket
  • Finishing at the rim
  • Lacks ideal NBA athleticism

    Summary: Pullen really made a name for himself last season which put him on NBA Draft radars. We know he can shoot the ball from deep, but how he handles taking over as Kansas State's point guard will determine whether he is a potential late first-round pick or possibly goes undrafted as he will need to run the point to be successful at the next level.

    Player Comparison: Eddie House. House is a terrific shooter, but undersized to be a real two guard and not a true point guard either. Pullen fits this label perfectly. If he can prove to be the consistent outside threat that House has been, he will find his niche in the NBA. If not, he likely ends up overseas.
