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

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: Rajon Rondo


College: Kentucky

Class: Sophomore



Position: PG

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 171lbs

Accolades: McDonald’s All-American (high school) (04), SEC All-Freshman Team (05), USA Men’s Under 21 Team (05).

Scouting Report: A lightning quick, explosive leaping point guard with off the charts rebounding ability.  Unfortunately he doesn’t possess much of a shooting touch.

Strengths: Great penetrator and disher.  His quickness allows him to blow by defenders, and he also has a nice passing touch.  An unbelievably strong rebounder for a point guard (or for any position for that matter) – grabbed 19 boards in a game this year.  He is also is a terrific defender – using his great quickness,  long reach, and jumping ability to snare passes and loose balls.

Weaknesses: Poor outside shooter.  He hasn’t shown the ability to knock down the 3-point shot consistently.  His big hands make his shot ugly to look at.  He also is a horrible free throw shooter, although to his credit he has improved this year.  Hasn’t been a big time scorer on the college level.

Projected 2006 Draft Range: Late lottery pick.

Consensus: Rondo’s quickness, leaping ability and defensive prowess make him a great NBA prospect.  If he works hard on his shooting touch he could become an all-star point guard down the road.  For the meantime defenders will continue to lag off him until he proves he can knock down jumpers.
