With the Kessler pick, I'm sure that Cleveland was in danger of getting two Millen grades in one Draft.. Has it ever been done before? Two Millens in one Draft? Anyway, I'm really proud of the Bears and Jaguars; they seem to know what they are doing. The Colts have greatly improved also; job security on a short leash works wonders sometimes. What about Romeo Okwara out of Notre Dame (3-4 DE)? Could this kid from Nigeria be a good pick? Also could the fall of Andrew Billings be explained? Instead of Niagra Falls and the 4 falls of Buffalo, we have the Billings falls.
Good results overall yesterday in sports. MLB: Closed and won a par with the Cubs -1.5 RL -135. Got another win win par with Balt game over and Seattle last night. I win two start up par plays..thank you Mets game Over and Rays game Under. Not posted (must have skipped it) but I do lose one par with the Under in the Cards game. NBA: Won another basketball teaser with Portland -2 last night...(Whew!) NHL In a well played game I lose a par with the Blues loss, albeit slightly hedged to take some of the sting out of the defeat. Congrats to winners and back later with some plays.
Summary: Withey has continued to blossom in his senior year at Kansas, developing into one of the best rim protectors in college basketball. Due to a limited offensive game, I am not sure that he is anything more than a career backup in the NBA but size is always needed at the next level, and his ability to block shots could earn him late-lottery looks.
Player Comparison: Omer Asik.
Lacking a ton of mobility or athleticism, Asik has developed into a double-double NBA big man because of his size and activity on the inside. While it seems highly unlikely that Withey will ever put together a season like Asik has this year in Houston, the Jayhawks senior could be a very solid reserve like Asik was last year in Chicago.
