I dunno though, the mock drafts haven't moved him down all that much. With DeJuan Blair, it didn't hit until draft day. Then he plummeted all the way out of the 1st round and the Spurs said "thank you very much, suckuz!"

From Raptors HQ:

Sullinger is in shape. I know he didn't measure out well athletically at the combine but I feel like he's going to be one of these deceptively quick guys. On one play in the three-on-three drills Henson rose up for a perimeter jump shot and Sullinger quickly closed out for the block, something that caught me off guard. He's really slimmed down from his freshman season at Ohio State, and he noted it's something he's been working on.

In addition, his back looked fine, something he reiterated to the media when questions concerning it were addressed. I think the "red flag" concerns are similar to those of DeJuan Blair and Danny Granger in that a future issue could manifest itself, but for now, he looks a-ok. In the drills as noted, he was his usual smooth self, attempting to punish guys down low, and able to stroke the face-up jumper with solid range.
