Drew Neitzel, PG, Michigan State

 

Strengths

Drew Neitzel averages 18 points per game but he isn't the most skilled player in the game.  He isn't the best shooter either.  But what he does have is great leadership and a heart for the game which has lead him to being one of the best point guards in the NCAAB.  Anyways, with that said, he is a great shooter, has talent, and also is a great passer.  How do you think Raymor Morgan became so good, so quickly?  Well, look Neitzel's way.  Neitzel also has a little bit of speed to him which he uses to race by defenders.  This Spartan is also very aggresive, attacking the basket.  If you use this stratagy, you are going to get fouled a lot and great for Neitzel, he is fantastic at sinking free throws.

 

Weaknesses

Drew Neitzel is a beast on the offensive side of the ball but his defense could use some work.  He isn't as fast as some other guards which causes him to give up easy baskets and other guards are also taller than Neitzel.  Drew does everything he can to prevent the opponent from scoring but other players are going to have easy looks at the basket because of Neitzel's lack of height.  Neitzel is also not that athletic, he wouldn't be able to last at least 25 minutes in an NBA game.  The NBA is the best of the game, even though a superstar, scouts will be cautious.

Overlook

When Drew Neitzel came to MSU, everything became good.  He turned Raymor Morgan into a superstar, MSU started a winning era, and om Izzo became a well-respected coach.  With all of that said, I don't think he will be drafted but will at least be picked up in Free Agency after the draft and be a life-long bench player.
