2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Kenneth Faried


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-8, 225

School: Morehead State, Senior


Strengths:
  • Outstanding rebounder
  • Good shot blocker
  • Great length
  • Stays active on the defensive end
  • Plays consistently with a high deal of energy
  • Solid build for adding strength at the next level
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Improving back to the basket and face-up game
  • Utilizes hook shot in the lane with either hand



    Weaknesses:
  • A bit undersized for an NBA four
  • 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.
