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

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: Craig Smith


College: Boston College

Class: Senior



Position: PF

Height: 6’7”

Weight: 250lbs


Accolades: Second Team All-Big East (03), Big East All-Rookie First Team (03), Big East All-Tournament Team (03), First Team All-Big East (04), Big East All-Tournament Team (04), First Team All-Big East (05).

Scouting Report:  A double-double waiting to happen every time he steps on the floor.  A physical speciman who is considered too short to be an effective NBA player.

Strengths: Scoring and rebounding.  Smith has been a big time scorer and rebounder all 4 years of his college career.  He uses his chiseled physique and strength to control the paint.  He is also a good passer out of the double team and can find cutting teammates when he is in the high post.  He also is extremely experienced, playing 4 years in big time conferences.

Weaknesses: Height.  At only 6’7” Smith is considered too small to play 4 in the NBA.  He is also too bulky and lacks a 3-point shot to play the 3.

Projected 2006 Draft Range: Early to late Second Round

Consensus: Smith has excelled in college as an undersized 4 man.  NBA scouts aren’t giving him much consideration as doing the same in the League.  If he sheds a few pounds and gains some quickness he has a shot.  It is a shame since he is such an effective post player on the college ranks.
