2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Bradley Beal


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-4, 205

School: Florida, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Attacking the basket
  • Athletic finisher
  • Three-point range
  • Moves well off the ball
  • Catch-and-shoot ability
  • Smooth stroke from the outside
  • Unselfish
  • Rarely forces the issue
  • Shows great maturity for his age
  • Rebounds well for his size
  • High-character person



    Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Defers to teammates too often
  • Showing assertiveness finishing at the rim
  • Room to improve defensively

    Summary: Beal is an interesting prospect for me. He didn't really get a chance to show off his true talent as a freshman playing in the same backcourt as Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton who have the ball in their hands so frequently. Still, he is a very talented young player and would be a mid-late lottery pick this summer.

    Player Comparison: Eric Gordon. Due to his all-around skill level on the offensive end, Beal is most often compared to Eric Gordon. Beal didn't show the take-over ability in his freshman season like Gordon did, but he is certainly capable of being a big-time shooting guard at the next level.
