2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Thomas Robinson


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-9, 237

School: Kansas, Junior


Strengths:
  • NBA-ready body
  • Strong rebounder
  • Toughness
  • Fierce competitor
  • Athleticism
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Footwork in the post
  • Has blow-by ability with a couple power dribbles
  • Decent mid-range jumper
  • Great outlet passer
  • Brings terrific energy to the floor
  • Guards on the perimeter well for his size



    Weaknesses:
  • Free throw shooting
  • A bit foul prone
  • Jumper still needs some work
  • Tends to take off some defensive possessions

    Summary: As expected, Robinson has emerged as the go-to player for the Jayhawks this season which has really helped his draft stock. He is pretty complete power forward with a very nice inside/outside game and a terrific combination of size, strength and athleticism to be an ideal NBA power forward. He is certainly a lottery prospect and could move as high as the top five if he really thrives at Kansas this season.

    Player Comparison: Poor-man's Blake Griffin. I am pretty high on Robinson, so I will give him a pretty lofty comparison. Robinson obviously isn't as good as Griffin was when he was at Oklahoma, but the two have similar traits: explosion at the rim, great athleticism for power forwards, strength, NBA-ready bodies. Griffin had a higher motor, but I actually think Robinson has a better jump shot.
