2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jeffery Taylor


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 225

School: Vanderbilt, Senior


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Explosive finisher
  • Attacking the basket
  • Excels in open court
  • Finding open spots on the floor
  • Good passer
  • Very active defender who can be great defender
  • Physical
  • Ideal size for NBA small forward



    Weaknesses:
  • Outside shooting
  • Inconsistent mid-range jumper
  • Ball-handling
  • Needs to be more assertive at attacking the basket
  • Agressiveness as a rebounder

    Summary: Taylor has been the same player the past couple of seasons and not shown much growth; a high-riser, solid defender with great size and athleticism for his position, but still really struggles with his outside shooting and creating offense for himself in the half-court. I wouldn't use a first-round pick on him, but he could sneak in as one of the top 30 picks.

    Player Comparison: Matt Barnes. Barnes is a solid defender who is at his best when he relies on his athleticism in attacking the basket, or running the floor and finishing at the rim. That also describes Taylor. Both guys also have the same weakness - shooting the ball from deep. Barnes has stuck in the league as a role player, and that's what Taylor can hope to do as well.
