2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jamie Skeen


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-8, 241

School: VCU, Senior


Strengths:
  • Strength
  • Length
  • Inside/Outside threat
  • Range out to the three-point line
  • Mid-range game
  • Active on the glass
  • Strong finisher at the rim
  • Establishing position on the block



    Weaknesses:
  • Needs to work on his back-to-basket game
  • Decent athleticism by NBA standards
  • Leaping ability
  • A bit undersized for a NBA power forward
  • Lateral quickness

    Summary: The former Wake Forest transfer was not even on my NBA Draft radar prior to the NCAA Tournament, but due to VCU's magical run to the Final Four, he suddenly drew a lot of interest and deservedly so. He has good size and a talented enough inside/outside game to draw second-round looks. If he goes undrafted, he will certainly get a chance to prove his worth in the summer league and in some team's training camp.

    Player Comparison: Brian Cook. A below-average athlete by NBA standards, Cook has stuck around in the league due to his ability to step out and knock down jump shots. Skeen has that weapon in his arsenal and also the strength to overcome his lack of size. I would not expect Skeen to be to anything more than a seldom-used role player at the next level like Cook.
