Lack of experience against more physical opponents that he will have to match up with in the NBA
Not much range on his jump shot
Gets most of his points off putbacks, layups and dunks
Free Throw Shooting
Summary: After testing the waters last summer, Kenneth Faried has seemed to solidify his status as a first-round pick due to relentless work ethic and effort on the glass. Some team could fall in love with him, and Faried could be off the board in the mid teens. More than likely, the early-mid 20s seem like a more probably landing spot for the nation's leading rebounder.
Player Comparison: Kris Humphries. Faried has relied on his athleticism and non-stop motor to be a double-double machine at the college level. Humprhies is the same mold of player who is posting career numbers this season. Neither guy is overly physical, and both are fairly limited to the paint with their offensive game, but Faried should be able to find a role in the NBA like Humprhies has.
Aren't you forgetting about Telvin Smith, one of the best young linebackers in the league?? Not only that, Myles Jack can easily slide into the MLB role, while Dante Fowler/ or Yannick Ngakoue rushes from the strongside LB spot. Sorry but, LB is definely not a major need for this squad. Nice try though smh
