2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Nerlens Noel


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 228

School: Kentucky, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Length
  • Athleticism
  • Elite shot blocker
  • Alters shots at the rim
  • Help defender
  • Denying passing lanes
  • Lateral quickness as a defender
  • Active on the boards
  • Plays with great energy
  • Runs the floor well
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Hook shot with either hand
  • Quick first step allows him to drive past slower bigs




  • Weaknesses:
  • Strength/physicality
  • Handling contact inside
  • Jump shot
  • Free throw shooting
  • Very raw offensivly
  • Developing a well-rounded back to the basket game


  • Summary: Noel draws a lot of comparisons to Anthony Davis, and while they are both lengthy, athletic, and can protect the rim, Noel doesn't possess near the offensive capabilites that Davis did. Based on the fact that he should still be a senior in high school and has tremendous potential, Noel will still be one of the top picks in the 2013 NBA Draft.

    Player Comparison: Joakim Noah.

    Noah is not a physical force inside, but uses his shot-blocking ability and activity inside to be very effective. Noel is the same type of player right now, and both guys are fairly limited on the offensive end with ugly looking jump shots.
