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

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: Tyrus Thomas


College: LSU

Class: Freshman



Position: PF

Height: 6’9”

Weight: 215lbs

Accolades: All Metro (high school – Baton Rouge) (04), Second Team All-State (Louisiana – high school) (04), Second Team All-SEC (06), SEC Freshman of the Year (06).

Scouting Report: An extremely athletic high leaping post player.

Strengths: Jumping.  Can soar above the rim to dunk strong.  Blocks an unbelievable amount of shots and changes even more due to his presence.  Is a great rebounder.  Runs the floor well and finishes even better.  Shoots for a very high percentage.  Is a double-double waiting to happen every game.

Weaknesses:  Needs to add weight to his frame – is still too thin to play the post in the NBA.  Doesn’t have very deep range on his jump shot – only shot (and hit) one 3-pointer this season.  Still very inexperienced – was a medical redshirt his first year in school and then played one season – and game is still raw.

Projected 2006 Draft Range: Top 3 pick (possibly 1st overall).

Consensus:  Thomas’ stock has sky rocketed after his play in the NCAA tournament.  His great leaping ability, athleticism and shot blocking prowess have scouts drooling.  With this year’s draft considered to be a fairly weak one, this could be Thomas’ shot to go 1st overall – with Greg Oden already penciled in as the #1 guy in 07.
