Kyle Weaver: NBA Draft Profile

May 14th, 2008

Kyle Weaver



College:  Washington State

Class: Senior

Position: PG/SG

Height:   6’6”

Weight:  201lbs


Accolades:  Honorable Mention All-American – CHN (08), First Team All-Pac-10 (08), Pac-10 All-Defensive Team (08), First Team All-Pac-10 (07).    


Scouting Report:  A great defender capable of playing either backcourt positions.


Strengths:  Versatile – can play either backcourt positions.  Great defender.  Quick.  Very good beating man off the dribble – nice crossover.  Good at getting to the hoop and scoring or dishing to teammates.  Good wingspan.  Good athlete.  Fantastic rebounder for a guard.  Smart player.  Great passer/assist man.


Weaknesses:  Thin – needs to get stronger.  Bad form on jump shot.  Not very explosive.  Wasn’t the team’s primary ball handler.  Not much of an outside shooter – needs to develop a three-point shot to keep defenders from sagging off him.  Inconsistent.  Not able to fully show offensive skills in Washington State’s system.


Projected 2008 Draft Range:  Early to mid second round pick.


Consensus:  While he doesn’t project to be a NBA star, Weaver could turn out to be a very solid pro at both ends of the floor.  Definitely would be worth a team using their second round pick on him and seeing if he can develop into a solid bench player at both guard positions.
