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

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: Josh Boone


College: Connecticut

Class: Senior



Position: PF/C

Height: 6’10”

Weight: 237lbs


Accolades: Big East All-Rookie Team (04), Big East Defensive Player of the Year (05), All Big-East Second Team (05)


Scouting Report: Athletic big man who excels on the defensive end of the floor.


Strengths: Defense.  Great shot blocker – good hops and long wingspan.  Runs the floor extremely well for a post player.  Has good hands.  Can finish around the basket.  Decent rebounder.  Experienced – practiced against many future NBA pro bigmen (Okafor, Villanueva) while at Connecticut.


Weaknesses: Not much of an offensive player – doesn’t have a lot of post moves or a good jump shot.  Horrible free throw shooter.   Has been inconsistent. 


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


Consensus:  Boone’s athleticism, experience and defensive skills have him as a sure fire first round pick.  With a little polish on his offensive game he could be a very solid pro at both ends of the floor – he will at the very least be a very good defensive pro.
