NBA Comparison: Qyntel Woods

Strengths: Great size for a shooting guard to go along with top notch scoring instincts ... Very advanced handle used to create separation ... Able to create his own shot from a variety of places on the court, adept at changing speeds ... Has a great ability to see the floor, willing passer ... Played PG many times throughout his prep career, can be relied upon as primary ball handler at times ... Potential to guard multiple positions as well as fill multiple positions in an offensive set ... Can stretch the floor, has a high release on his shot ... Quick hands that give him an advantage on both sides of the court ... Finishes well with either hand, hard to force into a weak spot ... Can move quite well laterally, has definite potential to be a solid wing defender ... High basketball IQ, seems to have a natural ability and sense of where to best operate on the floor ... Deceptive athlete if not an explosive one, which is really what makes his offensive skill set something to constantly taken into account as an opposing defender ... Wild card prospect with a lot of upside ...

Weaknesses: Used to playing with the ball in his hands, playing off the ball may be quite an adjustment ... Lacks optimal upper body strength at this point and can have trouble with contact ... Inconsistent shooting mechanics, as well as sometimes being plagued by poor shot selection ... Character concerns since he was in high school, had to sit out his entire freshman season at Providence due to academic issues only to enter the draft ... Lack of experience against top notch college competition, major unknown as to how he reacts against higher competition ... Questions about the level of effort, energy as to whether Ledo brings this on a consistent basis ... Very used to being the top option, some wonder whether he will adhere to playing a role and finding a niche at a pro level or whether he has the ability to adhere to a team setting ... Conditioning needs some work, was out of high level basketball for a year and he will more than likely take time to adjust to the NBA game speed

Notes: Measured 6'6 (in shoes) 193 lbs, with a 6'7 wingspan at the 2011 LeBron James Skills Academy ... Talent is undeniable, there was a definite reason that Ledo was so highly regarded as a 2-guard prospect at the HS level ... Concerns still loom quite large, with teams questioning whether the visible upside is worth the risk that goes along with his reputation ... Has shown that he wants to compete, appears to be saying and doing the right things, no real horror stories from his time at Providence this past year ... Definite sleeper who could enter the first round discussion, though the question marks more than likely relegate him to the 2nd round ... At a time was seen as possibly going undrafted, though the buzz is that he may just be too talented for a team not to gamble on a possible high level scoring guard with his type of versatility
