Stats: ESPN.com

New: Jared Dudley News Feed

 

Position: SF/PF

Height: 6”7”

Weight: 225lbs

 

Accolades:  Second Team All-ACC (06), All-ACC Tournament Team (06), First Team All-Big East (05), Big East Most Improved Player – co-winner (05), Big East All-Rookie Team (04), Third Team Freshman All-American – College Basketball News (04), All-State – California – high school (03).

 

Scouting Report: An experienced jack-of-all-trades.

 

Strengths: Great scorer – should end senior season with over 2000 lifetime points.  Can score down low on the post up or facing the basket.  Has good shooting range including a good three-point shot (currently shooting 42.5% for 3s).  Very good rebounder – will finish with close to 1000 boards for his career.  Very experienced – played his whole career in the ACC and the Big East.  Tough defender and double-teamer.

 

 Weaknesses: Not a very explosive athlete.  Will be an NBA tweener – too small for the power forward spot and not athletic/quick/explosive enough for the wing.  A little turnover prone. 

 

Projected 2007 Draft Range: Mid second round pick.

 

Consensus:  Dudley looks destined to be one of those players who were a much better college player than a pro.  He will have to continue to improve his long range shooting ability and work on his quickness to stick in the NBA.
