Roy Hibbert, C, Georgetown

 

Strengths

Roy Hibbert has ridiculous size, being a seven-foot beast and this will intimidate opposing centers in the NBA.  Really, isn't everyone scared of monsters?  You found your fear.  He uses this size to attack the basket and dunk, rebound, and block.  Hibbert also has an amazing jump shot for a seven-footer.  Also, try fouling him.  That is giving him an almost-too-easy point or two.  He makes about 80% of his free throws.  Roy has a strong passion for the game, will never back down from anything, but is also very laid-back at the same time.  You won't see him arguing with refs or committing stupid fouls.  His speed has also improved in his college years.

 

Weaknesses

Although Hibbert's speed has improved, it still isn't that great.  He runs very akwardly and stiffly, causing him to give up some easy baskets.  Too hard for him to get back fast on the defensive or offensive side.  Hibbert lacks athleticism which many centers in the NBA have a lot of.  Hibbert gives up a lot of turn-overs because of being too predictable on offense.  Hibbert averaged 2.2 blocks per game this year in a Hoya uniform but next year in an NBA uniform, he will be facing even bigger guys and won't get as many blocks.  Also has surprisingly bad reflexes despite averaging so many blocks.

Outlook

Roy Hibbert is a dominant and very powerful center who can cause trouble on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.  Since he is so big, I will expect him to be drafted in the first round, mid picks.  Personally, I would predict him to go to Golden State because of big-man troubles, but anyway, he will go fairly high.
