NBA Draft | NBA Mock Draft | 2006 Draft Profiles | Message Board

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: Cedric Simmons


College: North Carolina State

Class: Sophomore



Position: PF/C

Height: 6”9”

Weight: 233lbs

Accolades:  Fourth Team Parade All-American (high school) (04), MVP North Carolina East-West All-Star Game (04), Honorable Mention All-ACC (06), ACC All-Defensive Team (06).

Scouting Report:  A developing big man with a huge wingspan and great shot blocking ability.

Strengths:  Shot blocking – Simmons has an enormous wingspan and is a menace to the opposition’s shots.  He blocked 8 shots versus Iowa, and 7 versus Miami and Duke this year.  Nice hands – can handle passes down low.  Good passing skills for a big man.  Averaged almost 12 points a game despite not really being a focal point in the Wolfpack’s offense (averaged less than 7 shots per game).

Weaknesses: Needs to develop some go to post moves.  Isn’t weak or skinny but needs to add strength and bulk to his long frame.  Not very experienced – didn’t play many minutes his freshman year and has never been the team’s go to scorer.

Projected 2006 Draft Range: Late lottery to mid first round pick.

Consensus:  NBA teams are always on the look out for quality big men, and Simmons definitely falls into that category.  His long frame will hinder many of his opposition’s shot attempts in the NBA, and with a still developing body and offensive game the sky is the limit for him.
