NBA Draft.net: Marqus Blakely NBA Evaluation PDF Print E-mail
Written by VT Sports Network Article   
Tuesday, 10 February 2009

Strenghts: An outstanding athlete ... He put himself on the college basketball map when he had one of the year’s most exciting dunks in 2007 as a freshman during the American East Championship game vs. Albany which was nationally televised ... As a sophomore, he garnered both the America East Player of the Year and America East Defensive Player of the Year, which had never been accomplished before in league history .. A quick leaper as his 2.9 blocks per game will attest to ... Able to guard both wing and post players effectively ... Offensively, he attacks the rim with an attitude and as a result he gets to the free throw line quite often ... He is very crafty around the rim and finishes most of his shots (58.3% from the field) ... He could be intriguing to some NBA teams looking for defensive help, where Blakely could be very effective guarding a couple different positions.

Weaknesses: His offensive perimeter skills are very raw ... He is uncomfortable handling the ball on the wing ... He rarely puts the ball to the floor more than once or twice ... Also, he has yet to show any consistency shooting the ball outside of 12 feet ... Ball handling and outside shooting are two aspects of his game that must improve if he is going to have any shot at making an NBA roster ... At the college level, his game resides strictly in the paint. At only 6-5, he will not be able to have continued success down in the post as he will be extremely undersized. Poor free throw shooter as well (59%).
