Summary: After waiting his turn as a freshman, Carter-Williams has broken onto the national scene as one of the top point guards in college basketball. He is a pure point guard with a tremendous ability to distribute the basketball and affect the game with his unique size for the position. If Carter-Williams continues to play at such a high level this season, he will be a lottery pick and perhaps the first true point guard taken in the 2013 NBA Draft.
Player Comparison: A taller Rajon Rondo. Rondo is a point guard first, a scorer second. Carter-Williams is an identical type of player. Both guys are one of the top distributors at their level, impact the game in a variety of ways, and are at their best in transition or attacking the tin, but struggling shoot the rock from the outside. It's a stretch to say Carter-Williams will be as productive a pro as Rondo, but the former's 6-6 size gives him a unique attribute that few point guards possess.
Man your Browns' picks are horrible. Watson may not even be the best QB
in this draft and I know he isn't worth the 1st overall pick. The Browns
need help just about every where so they need to go BPA instead of
reaching for a QB. Then you have them trading up and wasting picks to do
so just to take Fournette when the Browns running game is one of the
few positions that they are fine at.
