Accolades: CAA Player of the Year (08), First Team All-CAA (08), CAA All-Tournament Team (08), Second Team High-Major All-American - CHN (08), First Team All-CAA (07), CAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player (07).
Scouting Report: The best “true” point guard in the draft.
Strengths: Great passer with terrific court vision. Throws creative passes and a great alley-oop passer. Great at pushing the pace. Can get into the paint and finish with layups and runners/floaters. Clutch performer - not afraid to take the big shot. Good defender. Very quick player. Experienced player. Has range on his jumper out past the three-point line. Can be an explosive scorer.
Weaknesses: Didn’t play in a major conference. Needs to add size/strength for the rigours of the NBA. Not an athletic freak like some other prospects. Will be 22-years-old before the draft so he probably doesn’t possess as much “upside” as some other prospects.
Projected 2009 Draft Range: Mid to late first round pick.
Consensus: Eric Maynor might be the safest bet for a team looking to pick up a point guard in this year’s draft. While he might not have as high a ceiling as some other guys, he definitely has a very good chance to enjoy a long career as a NBA point guard.
