Summary: Stephen Paea came to America as a teenager and only played one season of high school football. He took the junior college route before spending three seasons with the Beavers. This is a long-winded way to say he is still a work in progress with upside. His positives far outweigh the negatives at this point although he did have a knee issue at Snow Community College in 2008 and just suffered one at the Senior Bowl.
Player Comparison: Sedrick Ellis. Height concerns were also raised for Ellis coming out of USC, but he has been a productive pro for the Saints. Both players are penetrating disruptors of the running game with the ability to shed blockers. Paea didn't have the luxury of playing on an NFL defense like Ellis did on the Trojans.
Based on my mock draft which is accurate there isnt gonna be many options besides guards unless you reach a little. Still a month to go so some things could change. Lauri Markannen would be my 2nd choice. But still Rubio is NOT the furture PG for Twolves. Hes trade bait. And Tyus Jones is nothing more than a back up PG. IF THAT. So if they want to IMPROVE they would grab the 19 yr old PG with ton of potential who was once considered best PG in class. Smith-Lavine-Wiggins-Dieng-Towns.
