Quincy Miller if fully healthy after tearing his ACL during his senior year of high school, could be the steal of the draft in the late 20's.

By Brandon Pemberton

18. Quincy Miller 6-10 210lbs Freshman Baylor SF

2011-12 stats: 24.4 mpg, 10.4 ppg, 5 rpg, 45% fg, 81% ft, 35% 3ptfg

Prediction: Mid to late first round pick

Strengths: Quincy Miller is a talented prospect when you factor in his offensive skills, to go along with his height. His ability to score from the perimeter for a player his height is rare, he really has a natural stroke when shooting the ball. He is effective shooting the ball off the dribble, coming off of screens, and as a spot up shooter as well.

Weaknesses: Miller tore his ACL and missed his whole senior year of high school because of it. It was clear that he wasn’t at 100% during his one and only season as a Baylor Bear. Anytime a player has a knee injury, it’s a red flag. Miller relied too much on his perimeter game and didn’t take it to the hoop as much because of the injury. Miller if healthy, has the ability to be a versatile defender because of his height and quickness.
