So what if Zeke is a rookie? And they didn't draft him #4 overall, given that he's a prototype 3-down back, to have him in a timeshare with Morris or McFadden. Behind that line, coupled with his skills as a runner, receiver, and pass blocker, there's no way he should fall past the first round.
Use of pump fakes to create space or drive past defenders
Utilizes floater in the lane
Awesome in pick and roll/pick and pop situations
Quick crossover off the bounce
A shooting guard in a point guard's body
What position does he guard in the NBA?
Not a true distributor
Explosiveness at the rim
Summary: A breakout senior season earned Thames Mountain West Player of the Year honors and put him on the map for NBA teams. He has a deadly mid-range game, but the fact that he is more of a shooting guard in a point guard's body raises questions about what position he can play at the next level. As a result, Thames will likely be a second-round pick.
Player Comparison: Jannero Pargo. More of a combo guard than a true guard, Pargo has managed to stick around the NBA as a shooter, but he hasn't really found his true home. Thames faces a similar challenge. He will need to improve his point guard abilities to make a living in the league.
