27. Festus Ezeli - Senior 6-11 260lbs Vanderbilt 22 years old C/PF
2011-12 stats: 23.2 mpg, 10.1 ppg, 6 rpg, 2 bpg, 54%fg, 60%ft
Prediction: Late 1st to early 2nd round
Strengths: Festus Ezeli has a good combination of size, length, and athleticism for a man his size. A four year player who has gotten better each year he was at Vanderbilt. Is a good shot blocker, defensive player in the post, has the agility to come out and defend the pick and roll. One thing I like about him is he tries to finish everything with authority at the rim at all times.
Weaknesses: Needs to cut down on the fouls. He often gets two early fouls and has to sit out the first half of games. Even though he’s improved greatly, Ezeli is still raw offensively. If he could develop a go to move he could easily be a double-double guy for his career. He is also a poor free throw shooter and needs to get better in order to remain on the floor late in games.
