I don’t like to compare players to past NBA guys, but Terrence Ross reminds me of former Temple, Lakers, Hornets, and Heat great Eddie Jones.

19. Terrence Ross 6-6 195lbs Sophomore Washington SG/SF

2011-12 stats: 31.1 mpg, 16.4 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 45% fg, 37% 3ptfg, 77% ft

Prediction: Late Lottery to Mid first round

Strengths: Terrence Ross is an elite athlete with ability to score in various ways. Usually a player this young and with his athleticism wouldn’t be such a good scorer from the outside, but he is. Ross has worked himself into being a knockdown shooter. He also thrives in transition and is a highlight reel waiting to happen when he finishes at the rim.

Weaknesses: I would like to see Ross go to the basket and draw fouls more often. He took only 2.7 free throws a game, which is too small of a number for a player of his caliber. He also needs to lock in defensively, he could potentially be a lockdown defender with his combo of height, length, and athleticism.
