So what if Zeke is a rookie? And they didn't draft him #4 overall, given that he's a prototype 3-down back, to have him in a timeshare with Morris or McFadden. Behind that line, coupled with his skills as a runner, receiver, and pass blocker, there's no way he should fall past the first round.
@Walter I don't see how you think Fitz is "fine" there, given the fact you pointed out Palmer's diminishing arm strength and generally not liking older players. I get he's produced with awful QBs and they're not running him deep anymore, but even so, the point you made about AP apply even more to Fitz. Bad pick
Ability to power dribble to the right and get to the rim
Quick spin move on the block
Rarely forces the issue; takes what is given to him
Touch around the basket
Limited moves on the block
Aggressiveness on the glass
Slightly undersized to be a center; not skilled enough to be true power forward
Summary: After massively underachieving for his first three years at Georgetown, Sims has had a breakout senior season which has given him some buzz as a likely second-round pick. NBA teams are always in need of size and there are not a lot of true big men in the 2012 NBA Draft, so Sims should hear his name called.
Player Comparison: A poor-man's Joakim Noah. This is a bit of a stretch but there aren't a ton of big men who possess the passing ability of Sims. Noah is one of them, and like Sims, the Bulls center has a fairly limited offensive game and relies on his energy to be a productive NBA player. In no way do I think Sims will ever be a starter at the NBA level like Noah, but the two do have similar skills.
