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

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: Rudy Gay


College: Connecticut

Class: Sophomore



Position: SF

Height: 6’9”

Weight: 220lbs


Accolades: Big East Rookie of the Year (05), All Big East Rookie team (05)


Scouting Report: Can do it all at both ends of the floor but frustratingly doesn’t always.  Great size and skills tailor made for the NBA.

Strengths:  Good high arcing jump shot allows him to get it off over defenders.  Has shooting range well back behind the 3 arc.  Great athlete can take the ball to the rack with authority.  Also uses his size, speed and athleticism to steal a lot of balls and swat a lot of shots.  Will be able to use his size and high released jumper to score easily over NBA small forwards.

Weaknesses: Inconsistent.  Will follow up a 20+ point game with a single digit effort.  Lack of aggression/competitiveness.  Disappears during games (sometimes for a whole game) and defers to his teammates.  Has shot the ball very poorly this season, especially behind the 3-line.

Projected 2006 Draft Range: Top 3 pick.

Consensus:  While Gay will most definitely be a very high draft pick, he is far from a polished product.  He is familiar to Marvin Williams’ situation last year (a more talented version of Williams) – a player being drafted high due to their “upside”.  Still, he has all the tools to be a big time pro.
