NBA Draft: DeVon Hardin
Accolades: Honorable Mention All-PAC-10 (06).
Scouting Report: An explosive big man with a NBA-ready body.
Strengths: Very strong frame – NBA body. Great shotblocker. Capable low post scorer. Good jump hook. Explosive leaper – attacks the rim on offense and swats shots on defense. Good rebounder.
Weaknesses: Injury prone – had two surgeries in 2006 (shoulder and foot). Only played 12 games last season due to the injury, and no games since mid December. Needs to become more of a threat on the offensive end. Foul prone.
Projected 2007 Draft Range: Mid second round pick.
Consensus: After coming off a severely shortened junior season, Hardin’s best bet is to come back to school for his senior year. A solid, injury free, senior year in college could help propel him into the first round of next year’s draft.
