Decent post-up game, which has room for improvement
Good mobility for this size
Solid post defender
Touch around the rim
Free throw shooter
Aggressiveness on the glass
Turns the ball over too often for a big
Decision-making in the post
Prone to foul trouble
Summary: Ezeli will be drafted solely due to his size alone. He isn't a stiff by any means inside, but does not possess a ton of skill, which projects him as a backup at the next level. Ezeli battled injury early in his senior season which sort of stunted his growth some, but because NBA teams are always in need of some size inside, he will get drafted possibly as high as late in the first round. More than likely, he'll fall into the second round.
Player Comparison: Brendan Haywood. Ezeli isn't an especially skilled or athletic big man, but knows how to use his big body in the paint and make the most out of the opportunities he is given. Haywood is a similar player who has made a living in the NBA due to his size and strength; not because he is an overly talented basketball player.
Kyrie Irving couldn't get the Cavaliers to the 8th seed in a terrible eastern conference. He only started tasting play-off basketball when Lebron James returned. The Cavaliers should trade him to another dumpster fire like the Knicks.
@Drunk Ass Jerry To your points.... M. Hyatt is excellent but lacks the size many feel needed for OT and see him as a OG in the NFL... Safety is still a need for the Bucs ... RB it seems like C. Sims is always hurt... D. Martin has been up and down... I like J. McNichols alot but see him as their 3rd down back of the future.. I did grab a CB in RD4 for them... and 2018`s edge rushing talent isn`t deep into the later rounds..I see them using F/A for edge help more than the 2018 draft.
