J. J. Hickson, F, North Carolina State
Hickson is an athletic big man with an NBA frame and the ability to score from 15 feet and in. He’s shown good ability as a shot-blocker and a rebounder and has been shooting with extreme efficiency from the field.
Although scouts say he’s raw and could use another year in school, the combination of length, athleticism and efficency is usually a potent one come draft time. His stock is harder to judge because of his rawness, but most scouts have him going somewhere in the mid-first round.
