2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Festus Ezeli


Position: Center

Size: 6-11, 255

School: Vanderbilt, Senior


Strengths:
  • Size
  • Strength
  • Physicality
  • Strong finisher
  • Decent post-up game, which has room for improvement
  • Good mobility for this size
  • Solid post defender
  • Shot-blocking ability



    Weaknesses:
  • Touch around the rim
  • Mid-range game
  • Free throw shooter
  • Aggressiveness on the glass
  • Turns the ball over too often for a big
  • Decision-making in the post
  • Prone to foul trouble

    Summary: Ezeli will be drafted solely due to his size alone. He isn't a stiff by any means inside, but does not possess a ton of skill, which projects him as a backup at the next level. Ezeli battled injury early in his senior season which sort of stunted his growth some, but because NBA teams are always in need of some size inside, he will get drafted possibly as high as late in the first round. More than likely, he'll fall into the second round.

    Player Comparison: Brendan Haywood. Ezeli isn't an especially skilled or athletic big man, but knows how to use his big body in the paint and make the most out of the opportunities he is given. Haywood is a similar player who has made a living in the NBA due to his size and strength; not because he is an overly talented basketball player.
