2014 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Glenn Robinson III


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 210

School: Michigan, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Explosiveness
  • Finishing at the rim
  • Excels in transition
  • Straight-line driving ability
  • Quick first-step
  • Decent mid-range game
  • Defensive potential




  • Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Breaking down defenders off the bounce
  • Creating his own shot
  • Too passive on the offensive end
  • Aggressiveness on the boards
  • Hasn’t blossomed like you’d hope through two years of college


  • Summary: Robinson has the physical tools and attributes that a team would covet in an NBA small forward, but he failed to show much development during his two years at Michigan. The potential is still there for Robinson to become a solid player at the next level, but he figures to be a borderline first-round pick on draft night.

    Player Comparison: Gerald Green. Like Robinson, Green was long, athletic and loaded with potential when he entered the NBA. However, Green had not yet fully developed his all-around offensive game, so he bounced around and eventually out and back in the league. Robinson has the physical makeup to be a solid NBA wing player, but it is going to take him some time to groom his skill set, like it did with Green.
