23. Royce White 6-8 270lbs Sophomore Iowa St. PF/SF 22 years old
2011-12 stats: 31.5 mpg, 13.4 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 5 apg, 3.8 tpg, 53% fg, 50% ft
Projection: Mid to late first round
Strengths: Royce White is a jack of all trades, very versatile for a player of his size. Played the point forward for the Cyclones, leading them to the NCAA tourney and a first round victory over UConn. Can take players his size or bigger to the perimeter and beat them off the dribble, creating for himself and others. Uses his big frame well in the paint to carve out space and get shots off over taller defenders.
Weaknesses: White suffers from an anxiety disorder that makes it hard for him to travel by plane. Well in the NBA, planes are the lifestyle and way of travel. White is a player who can get to the foul line frequently, but only shoots 50% from the line. That is something he really has to work on. Teams are really high on his skill level, if not for the anxiety issues, White could be a lottery pick.
