Anthony Davis

Height: 6’10

Evaluation: Saying Anthony Davis is versatile at 6’10” is an understatement. The former guard is a force down low since he is a tremendous shot-blocker and rebounder and is very good at guarding the perimeter against smaller players. He can also handle the ball well and is a good passer. Davis is a very unselfish player and has the ability to create shots for his teammates. Additionally, being a former guard, he can score off the dribble and can play with his back to the basket or facing the basket. Davis is simply a very tough match-up due to his versatility. His shooting is respectable and he is a dominant offensive rebounder which allows him to get a lot of easy put-backs. Davis’ potential is unlimited and the sky is the limit for him, which is why he is ranked #1. He can improve by putting on some muscle to his 200-pound frame but you got to give him some time given that he grew eight inches in the past year. He can stay out on the perimeter too much at times as well but as he gets more used to his new-found height he will camp out more in the paint. Look for Davis to dominate at Kentucky next year and to be an impact player in the NBA.
