Chris Lofton, SG, Tennessee

Strengths: Lofton is arguably the best 3-point shooter in the Nation.  He averaged 20+ PPG last year.  This year his stats have seen a drop but his leadership is great as Lofton led the Volunteers to a win against Memphis to take the 1. spot.  He beat Texas last year and outscored Kevin Durant by about 10 points, who is now an NBA rookie who is averaging near 19 PPG.  Pretty Impressive, eh?

 

Weaknesses: Like I said, he has seen a drop in his stats for an unknown reason, he has average speed for a SG and a very small size (6-2), he plays defense like he is invisible, and to top it all off, he has below-average passing skills for a guard.

Outlook: He has amazing 3-point shooting but his lack of size shouldn't help him.  He will be matching up against 6-6 guards every night.  He has great leadership qualities but I don't know how far that can take him without the right skill.  He is getting little attention from NBA scouts.
