Draft Profile: Andre Drummond
 
6-11 275lbs Freshman Center at UCONN. Some people projected him as the #1 pick early on for 2012.


Strengths:
Area Rebounding
Defensive Presence
Explosiveness

Weakness:
Mid range jumper
Competitiveness

One of the elite talents in the class of 2012, Drummond has the size, mobility, athleticism, instincts and pure ability to be a future lottery pick. Already he's developed a couple of post moves, including a go-to hook. His explosiveness and length are a serious issue for the opposition, as he gets his hands on a lot of shots. Going forward consistency and constant effort is an area for improvement.

His inside passing is beastly too, would love to get this guy for the Raps, its just we're not need any 4s or 5s

Someguy again 12-20-2011 04:24 PM

great prospect,but theres no way in shit he's gonna make those fancy passes in the paint at the NBA level, plus his weakness is Competitiveness?

16pts 11reb 1blk in UCONN win over St John tonight.

Getting better each game.


RaptorsandBuckeye FaN 01-14-2012 02:03 PM

Another double double - 10pts 13reb 2blks in UCONN win @ND.

His 4th double double in his last 5 games.

If Amare and Dwight had a love child, the result would be Andre Drummond. :bowdown:

Again, another guy I`m not understanding the hype around. He`s just so raw and well, dumb. Again, too much of a highlight reel guy but not really all the smart on the court and kinda lazy on the defensive end.

He'll prob go first too. I was saying this is not a good tanking draft but I got laughed at

Dude I`m right behind you (and I think I was in the thread as well). This is almost a draft I get out of completely beyond the top 3 or 4 (maybe).

This is a draft were you have a .500 team that is young and not ready yet. It'll get you that bench player or 5th starter you need and you'll get it in the middle of it.

There is no superstar in this draft :(. Poor Raptors never tank on time

Carlos Danger 02-03-2012 03:31 AM

Put this one on the back burner, he's more then likely going back for his SOPH year, per NBAdraft.net

RaptorsandBuckeye FaN 03-15-2012 11:37 PM

Really needs another year of college.

Anyways with UCONN loss tnight to Iowa State, their season is over.

2pts(1-4) 3reb 4blks in the loss.

His stock has dropped...
This is an amazing opportunity for the Raptors to pick him...

BC is going to have so many options this off season!

UCONN has been banned due to poor academic standings from postseason in 2013, so Drummond could put his name into the next draft. This'll be interesting.

+2

A davis is maybe a solid pick with the forst, but i'm not sure after him there is so much talent, like 2003.
this draft is full of hype, but i don't see much talent than last year.

i hope we can draft a solid sf to start next season or be a solid backup for JJ (if he stay here)

RaptorsandBuckeye FaN 04-12-2012 11:17 PM

Source: Drummond to enter draft.

Great news. Will make someone else fall to #5/#6 if that is where Raptors end up.

Someguy again 04-13-2012 09:47 AM

i think drummond could really develop well in a good system but bust hard in a failing one or one that is going through a transition, (sacramento) but if the raptors get him, i think he would be the perfect big man for casey to work with and develop. casey emphasizes in developing a competitive nature in his players in order to get playing time is not afraid to bench who ever shys away. this is something that could really help drummond because he needs this type of discipline to succeed in the nba.

powerfulpanda 04-13-2012 10:55 AM

i don't know.... he is a horrible ft shooter (33%!) and he averages about 1-2 ft per game!! this from ur starting big man. what does that tell you? he's not agressive and shys away from contact. and this is in the NCAA where he has even more of a size advantage. how would he do in the NBA?

dfunkie1 04-13-2012 11:52 AM

didn't watch him a single time this season. is he more deandre jordan than his earlier amare comparisons?
