2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Shelvin Mack


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-3, 215

School: Butler, Junior


Strengths:
  • Outside shooter
  • Catch and shoot ability
  • Creating his own shot
  • Pull up jumper
  • Uses his strength to get to the basket
  • Body control in the lane
  • Effective in pick and roll situations
  • Physicality
  • Toughness
  • Hustle



    Weaknesses:
  • Streaky, volume shooter
  • Average athleticism/quickness
  • Not very explosive around the rim
  • More of a scoring point guard than true distributor
  • Will likely struggle guarding quick point guards

    Summary: Shelvin Mack has received a ton of national expsoure the past two seasons due to Butler's runs to the Final Four which should give NBA scouts a good feel for his potential at the next level. He is the definition of a combo guard who will need to learn how to be more of a true point guard if he wants to maximize his opportunity in the NBA. He should get late first-round looks but could fall into the early second.

    Player Comparison: Willie Green. Green is an undersized off guard in the NBA who has never been able to grasp his opportunities as a point guard. He and Mack both rely on their strength to help them on both ends of the floor. If Mack can work on his pure point guard skills, he should be able to run an offense in the NBA rather just be an undersized two.
