Undrafted but deserve to be drafted in the second round

Anthony Marshall is a very talented athlete.  However, I currently do not see any mock drafts having him being drafted at all.   He is likely going to be undrafted but I do think there is an outside chance for the the second round.

The good

  • Very athletic – he will do well in athletic drills during workouts
  • Shooting improvement
    • As a freshman, only made 1 3-pointer and shot 4% from 3-point land
    • As a sophomore, shot 20% from 3-point land
    • As a junior, shot 26% from 3-point land
    • As a senior through 13 games, shooting 52% from 3-point land
    • Excellent defender
    • Excellent rebounder for his size

The bad

  • Is not a point pure point guard as he played mostly shooting guard his first three years of college.  Too many good point guards in the NBA so unlikely to be his position
  • Is not a traditional shooting guard.  His shooting has greatly improved but is not a pure shooter.  He is a little undersized as shooting guard in the NBA

If Anthony Marshall was 6’6, we would be drafted for sure with an outside chance of going in the first round.  The reason why I think he might get drafted is that the NBA loves athletic players and Marshall is one.  His improved shooting will alleviate some concerns.  He is a glue guy that can come off the bench and play both guard spots, play excellent defend, and do a little bit of everything.  Glue guys typically don’t get drafted especially undersized players but his athleticism gives him a chance.  There are some players that coaches just like to play.  Marshall is that guy.

He has a chance to become an NBA rotation player, similar to a Dahntay Jones or Ketih Bogans, just a little smaller version of them though.
