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

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: JJ Redick


College: Duke

Class: Senior



Height: 6’4”

Weight: 190lbs


Accolades: All ACC Freshman Team (03), All ACC Third Team (03), All ACC Second Team (04), First Team All American (04), ACC Player of the Year (04)


Scouting Report: A gunner.  The best shooter in college basketball.  Range goes well beyond the NBA 3 point line.  Deadly coming off of picks due to his quick release and elevation.  Can also get his shot off over defenders because of his quick trigger.  Has improved at putting the ball on the floor and driving to the basketball.  Clutch performer who is mentally tough due to hostile crowds at every away game (many call him the most hated Duke player of all time) and defenses geared to stop him.


Strengths:  Shooting.  Mental toughness.  Competitive fire.  Using screens-finding a way to get open and get his shot off.


Weaknesses: Average quickness and athleticism.  Small for a 2 guard.  Tweener – too small and unathletic to guard NBA 2 guards, too slow to cover NBA point guards.  Defense needs improvement.


Projected 2006 Draft Range: Middle first round pick.


Consensus:  Redick’s unbelievable range and scoring ability will definitely intrigue most NBA teams.  However, he will need help to get his shot off in the NBA where he will be guarded by much larger and athletic men.  Will struggle defending NBA guards due to his size and lack of NBA-level quickness.  Still, will be very valuable to a team running him off of picks (like Detroit’s Richard Hamilton) or a team with an inside presence that is doubled down on frequently (leaving J.J. open behind the arc).
