NBA Draft Profile: Ramon Sessions

May 15th, 2007

NBA Draft: Ramon Sessions


College: Nevada

Class: Junior



Position: PG

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 190lbs


Accolades: Second Team All-WAC (07), WAC Freshman of the Year (05), WAC All-Newcomer Team (05), South Carolina 3A Player of the Year – high school (04), All-State – South Carolina – high school (04), All-State – South Carolina – high school (03).


Scouting Report: A solid point guard with good all-around skills.


Strengths: Good ball handler.  Very fast – can get the ball up the floor in a hurry.  Good jumping ability.  Scrappy rebounder – averaged over four boards a game the past two seasons.  Quick hands on defense.  Became a very good free throw shooter his junior year.  Good ball control – almost twice as many assist than turnovers.  Can hit the three-pointer. 


Weaknesses: Needs to show that he can score – junior season was his only year in double digits in scoring per game.  Shoots the three for a good percentage, but has only hit 25 long bombs total for his college career – needs to establish an outside shot to stop NBA defenders from cheating off him.  Junior year was the only season he shot for a respectable percentage from the field. 


Projected 2007 Draft Range:  Mid second round pick.


Consensus:  Sessions is a solid college player, but he would benefit from another year in college.  With scoring machine Nick Fazekas graduating, Sessions could take a bigger role in the offense next season and become more of an outside threat.
