NBA Comparison: Marco Killingsworth

Strengths: Tough, physical and willing to put his body on the line to grab boards ... Aggressive in the paint, has wide shoulders and is very good at using them to create space ... Good hands to go along with a great nose for the ball ... Stretched out his game and became a decent shooter from midrange ... Was one of the nations premier rebounders as a senior ... Nice ability for sealing and boxing out on the offensive glass ... Gritty defender, uses strength to knock larger players off balance ... Showed a lot of dedication to improving his body and conditioning during his final years at NC State ... Willing passer who averaged more assists than turnovers while playing a majority of his minutes at center ... One of the FG percentage leaders in the ACC during his last year ... Does not shy from contact and has spent most of his college career guarding larger players, this season more than holding his own

Weaknesses: Definitely undersized for a C, even lacking ideal dimensions for the PF spot ... While he can knock down the occasional jumper, does not really stretch the floor much ... Not an explosive athlete, very much a below the rim player ... Downside of his physical play is that it could get him into foul trouble, had the most fouls in the ACC during his junior/senior season ... Does not have great lateral quickness, could be a candidate to get burned in pick and roll situations ... Will require monitoring as far as conditioning is concerned, will have to work hard to maintain his current playing weight ... Not an overly reliable foul shooter, though he has improved in that area ... Will have to adapt to the PF spot and guarding quicker players ... Not much of a post player, no real go-to moves offensively ... Had a solid senior season, though hard to call it consistent

Notes: Turned into one of college basketballs elite rebounders, a skill which does tend to translate ... Knows his role and plays within his abilities ... Averaged 19.5 ppg and 13.5 rpg in his meetings with Duke, really gave them all they could handle on the inside ... Showed a great deal of improvement from start to finish, obviously had a work ethic and is a serious candidate to be drafted ... Likely late 2nd rounder whose role will be to provide toughness, hard fouls and attack the glass ...
