NBA Draft: Sean Williams
College: Boston College
Accolades: Big East All-Rookie Team (05).
Scouting Report: A game altering shot blocker who’s off court issues may derail his career.
Strengths: Shot blocking – Williams changes the game due to his shot blocking skills. He had two games his junior season where he had 12 and 13 blocks respectively. Extremely athletic with a crazy wingspan (7’5”) makes him a menace on the defensive end. Offensive game improved greatly his junior year.
Weaknesses: Off court problems – was dismissed from Boston College part way through his junior season. Was also suspended two other times during his college career. Latest suspension is rumored to be drug related. Offensive game is a work in progress – he only became a scoring threat his junior season.
Projected 2007 Draft Range: Early to mid second round pick.
Consensus: The NBA isn’t full of angels by any means, so no doubt a team will take a chance on Williams. Whether he can straighten himself out and reach his potential is unknown though. Williams was already a “work in progress” type of draft pick and missing a large chunk of his junior season will definitely not help his skills develop.
