2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Ricardo Ratliffe


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-8, 240

School: Missouri, Senior


Strengths:
  • Efficient scorer around the basket
  • Doesn't force the issue; takes what is given to him
  • Active on the boards on both ends
  • Gets great positioning as a rebounder
  • Agility
  • Strength, physicality
  • Plays with terrific energy
  • Moving his feet on the defensive end
  • Runs the floor well



    Weaknesses:
  • Limited offensive game
  • Jump shot
  • Not an explosive athlete
  • A center trapped in a power forward's body

    Summary: Ratliffe put together an extremely efficient season, shooting nearly 70 percent from the field this past year. He is very active on the inside and physical down low, but is a bit undersized and limited with his offensive game, which makes him a second-round prospect.

    Player Comparison: Jason Maxiell. Like Maxiell, Ratliffe is a center trapped in a power forward's body. Maxiell has utilized his wide frame and physicality to be a serviceable role player, which Ratliffe could become as well. Neither guy has a great deal of offensive ability outside of the paint, but both are effective around the hoop.
