Knows how to absorb contact and still finish around the rim
Quick on his feet and pretty agile for a big guy
Good touch around the rim
Serious red flag due to character issues
Concerns about his coachability and desire to help a team
Lacks a toughness you would expect from someone his size
Not a tenacious rebounder
Moving his feet on the defensive end
Summary: His problematic history has been well documented and as a result, an NBA team would be foolish to give him the guaranteed money of a first-round pick (at least I'd hope so.) He still has the size and skill that NBA teams covet and will certainly get plenty of second-round looks. If Sidney is ever able to put it all together, he could be a second-round steal, but that will be a major barrier for him to overcome.
Player Comparison: Zach Randolph. From their early maturity issues, to their big bodies, to their ability to step out and knock down mid-range jumpers, this comparison seems pretty spot on. If Sidney can ever it figure it out like Randolph eventually did, the skill set is there for him to be a talented NBA player. That is a big "if" though.
Dropping a team an entire letter grade for moving up to grab a player at the end of the day is moronic. The packers weren't playing fair going in to friday to allow my bucs to move up to get budda baker, why would anything change on saturday? Other people had beckworth rated in the 70's as a prospect, 30 places hugher then what he was taken. Way better then the guys above you gave As for! But thats just my logical opinion over your emotional one....
I love that Walter (a guy who runs a website out of his moms ba@[email protected]) can decide a guy is a fourth rounder and act superior when an NFL GM (a guy who does the job that Walter wishes he had) takes the same guy in the second round.
