2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Drew Gordon


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-9, 245

School: New Mexico, Senior


Strengths:
  • Strong rebounder
  • Aggressive on the boards
  • Strength, physicality
  • High-energy player
  • Solid post defender
  • Lateral quickness as a defender
  • Finishing around the rim
  • Capable scorer on the block
  • Footwork in the post



    Weaknesses:
  • Mid-range game
  • Primarily a screener/offensive rebounder on offensive end
  • Ball-handling
  • Sometimes falls asleep getting back in defensive transition

    Summary: Gordon projects to be a rebounding role player at the next level. He has some limitations on the offensive end which hurts his stock and is why he is a second-round prospect.

    Player Comparison: Nick Collison. Collison has carved out a career as a valuable role player off the bench who relies on his rebounding, physicality and toughness to be productive in the NBA. Gordon will have to follow suit and build his niche as an energy role player who can provide some decent minutes off the bench by crashing the glass and playing solid defense.
