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

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: Patrick O'Bryant


College: Bradley

Class: Sophomore



Position: C

Height: 7”0”

Weight: 260bs


Accolades:  Missouri Valley Conference All-Newcomer Team (05), Missouri Valley Conference All-Freshman Team (05), Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year (06).

Scouting Report: A fundamentally sound but skinny post player.

Strengths: Very fundamentally sound – good, solid post moves; nice looking form on jump shots; decent free throw shooter.  Very long frame allows him to block tons of shots.  Very athletic for a big man – can get up and down the floor.  Good rebounder – had 19 and 16 board games this season.

Weaknesses: Still not big or strong enough to post up consistently in the NBA.  Very inexperienced – only played 2 years of college, and those were spent in a mid-major conference.  Was suspended by the NCAA at the starting of his sophomore year for rules infractions.

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

Consensus:  O’Bryant had a breakout NCAA tourney and made himself a household name among NBA scouts.  His game definitely needs at least another year of college, but considering he is a definite first round pick that probably isn’t going to happen.  In a few years time, assuming he can get stronger physically, O’Bryant could be an above average center in the NBA – possibly an all-star.
