2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Rick Jackson


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-9, 240

School: Syracuse, Senior


Strengths:
  • Physical down low
  • Does a great job of establishing his presence in the paint
  • Active on the boards
  • Length
  • Good arsenal of moves on the block
  • Uses pump fakes to get defenders in the air
  • At best when operating along the baseline
  • Handling double teams down low
  • Good passer off the block



    Weaknesses:
  • Perimeter game
  • Jump shot
  • Free throw shooting
  • Doesn't have great athleticism or explosiveness
  • Played all zone in college; doesn't have a lot of man-to-man defensive experience against bigger bodies

    Summary: Jackson has turned into a double-double machine in his senior season which has increased his chances of being a second-round pick in 2011. However, his lack of a step-out game on the offensive end could mean he goes undrafted and has to try to make a roster the hard way.

    Player Comparison: Darnell Jackson. I really do not see Rick Jackson being anything more than an additional body on the roster to add depth up front if he even makes a team. Darnell has a little bigger body but had a similar collegiate career in that he was a solid role player due to his physicality and rebounding which is what makes Rick a solid player at Syracuse. Darnell will never be a significant contributor in the NBA, and I do not see Rick making a major splash either unless he develops a face-up game.
