College: Wake Forest
Accolades: ACC All-Freshman Team (08).
Scouting Report: One of the breakout stars of the 08/09 college season.
Strengths: Explosive off the dribble - can get by his man, split double teams. Good at getting shot off over defenders off the dribble (floaters, acrobatic shots). Aggressive - always looking to attack on offense and defense. Killer crossover. Very quick hands on defense - gets tons of steals. Explosive scorer. Good body control. Extremely fast player. Great three-point shooter. Good experience - played two years of big minutes in the ACC
Weaknesses: Small for the NBA - needs to get bigger/stronger. Isn’t a true point guard - spends a lot of his time at the shooting guard spot. Will be too small for the off guard position in the NBA. Needs the ball to be effective. Forces passes. Really needs to cut down on turnovers - has as many turnovers as assists for his career. Is a year older than most other sophomores.
Projected 2009 Draft Range: Lottery pick.
Consensus: Jeff Teague probably has the most improved draft stock among this year’s prospects. However, he really could use another year in college to prove he can run the point in the NBA.
