NBA Comparison: Matt Barnes

Strengths: One of the NCAA’s premier all-around rebounders, willing to sacrifice his body for boards … Gets off the ground really quickly, great recovery for second jump … Plays much bigger than his height, has the tenacity to be a viable defender for either forward position … Good nose for the ball, has an ability to play prevent defense and patrol the passing lanes … Has timing to block shots occasionally … Showed great improvement as a passer during his time in college … Willing to put his body on the line, setting screens and taking charges … Can get baskets in the paint on hustle plays, shot a very high % from inside the arc … In very good condition, played a high volume of minutes in college … Led a very successful entry into the Pac-12 conference, energy is high and contagious, large attribution to the most success Colorado has had in years ...

Weaknesses: Possesses below average ball skills, shooting ability to play on the wing and lacks close to ideal size to play the 4 spot … Never developed into a go to offensive player, range is very limited … Slightly low release on his shot, has difficulty creating separation … Did not get to the foul line very often and shot a very poor percentage when he did … Worked on stretching his range with incredibly limited success this past year, overall shooting percentage and offensive efficiency dropped quite a bit … Has a lot of trouble when pressured, can be forced into mistakes if he has to put the ball on the floor … Plays with wiry strength, yet is still very slight at under 210 lbs … Played very little SF in college, could be major adjustment on the offensive end in the professional ranks

Notes: Second leading rebounder in the NCAA during his junior year, averaging 11.3 rpg … 2 time All Pac-12 selection, winning the 2013 Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year … Led Colorado to NCAA Tournament appearances during his last two seasons, with the first ending a ten year Tournament drought … Hustle player whose energy will get him drafted, most likely in the early to mid second round as a potential defensive specialist with rebounding instincts as an added bonus ...

Strengths: Explosive athlete that is able to make a big impact on the game without having to score ... Great length and leaping ability, and he doesn't put either to waste ... Nice frame that looks like it should hold a good amount of muscle ... Super-high motor ... Excellent overall defender ... With added weight, should be the kind of player that can defend three or four different positions due to his intensity and lateral quickness ... Terrorizes the passing lanes and disrupts the opposition by deflecting anything he can ... Highly aggressive rebounder, both offensively and defensively ... Remarkably effective on the glass for a sub-200 lbs wing player, pulling down over 11 boards a game 19 games into his sophomore season ... Doesn't need a lot of plays called for him to be an effective offensive player ... Scores the majority of his points via put-backs and fast-break opportunities ... Stays active in half-court sets as well, and is an easy ally-oop target off of back-door cuts ... Outside shooting ability is showing improvement ... Free-throw shooting is up to nearly 68% compared to 55% a season ago ... Hard worker that is willing to do the dirty work to help his team win ... Willing role-player that has the potential to become a lot better ...

Weaknesses: Not much of a scorer ... The only offense he can consistently create for himself stems from his defense/hustle ... Clearly uncomfortable with the ball in his hands outside of the paint ... Willing passer, but lacks the confidence on the perimeter ... Somewhat of a tweener ... Lacks the size to play in the post full-time, but also currently lacks the handle/shooting ability to be an offensive threat as a small forward ... Needs to add strength and polish his skill-set before he's ready to contribute in an NBA rotation ...

Overall: Roberson separates himself from other raw athletes by playing his heart out every game, and that will do a lot for his draft stock ... Ideally, he'll develop a better jump shot and become a lock-down defender at the next level ... He's a potential lottery pick, depending on how he develops over the next year or two ...
