I'm very skeptical how good of a team Minnesota really is after the Green Bay game. I feel like they are very one dimensional with Peterson, and ATL is 1st in the league in YPG against the run(against fairly easy rushing opponents). As long as Atlanta clamps down vs the run, they should win this game. They will still have a balanced offense with Coleman at rb. With Harrison Smith out, Julio should have a huge game vs Rhodes without Smith over top. Minnesota will obviously try anything to stop Julio, but he is so damn good. Minnesota has the advantage in that Atlanta is so unreliable to bet on as of late which is scary. Also, Minnesota has the x-factor in their special teams.
Handles the ball in an almost point forward type role
Board and then lead the break
Can take bigger defenders off the bounce
Able to post up smaller opponents
Great touch around the basket
Guards the perimeter or the post
Needs to be more aggressive on the glass
Relies too much on his finesse rather than being assertive at the rim
Has to be stronger with the ball
Lacks a killer instinct
Summary: Because of his comibation of size, ability to handle the basketball and inside/outside game, Harris is an intriguing draft prospect. He would be a safe bet to go in the first round this summer ranging anywhere from the mid-teens to the late 20s. He may be better served returning to school though because I am not sure he makes an immediate impact at the next level.
Player Comparison: Boris Diaw. Both players are combo forwards who rely on their finesse game, and ability to step outside and knock down shots rather than banging around inside. Diaw can handle the basketball and shows great passing instincts for a forward, areas that also add to Harris' game.
