Kessler Edwards Draft Notes

Edwards is a multi-talented forward who projects as a floor-spacing, 3&D wing. His perimeter shot will get him a long look from NBA teams and he’s got the requisite size and agility to make it at the NBA level.

He’s got a nice quick release on his jumper and has been a consistent shooter over the years.

Edwards has quick hands and feet on defense and can guard a few positions. He can switch off on guards as needed and can even hold his own in the paint and guard some bigs.


Marcus Zegarowski Draft Notes

Height: 6-2
Weight: 181
College: Creighton
Classification: Junior
Birthdate: 8/3/1998

2021 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 61
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted


Solid shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Solid playmaker
Adequate rebounder for his size
Adequate defender


Can struggle to score in traffic
Can struggle against length and athleticism
Struggles to guard quicker players
Only an average athlete
A bit undersized for his position


Marcus Zegarowski is a tough, gritty playmaker that can reliably run the point, and he is an effective game manager that can run his team’s offense.  He is a good shooter that excels at knocking down jump shots to provide floor spacing, and he also makes sound decisions with the ball in his hands.  He will need to show teams that he can consistently guard upper-echelon players on the defensive end.  Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect in the 2021 draft.


RaiQuan Gray Draft Notes

Height: 6-8
Weight: 269
College: Florida State
Classification: Redshirt Junior
Birthdate: 7/7/1999

2021 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 45
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round

Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent low post scorer
Decent scorer off the dribble
Decent playmaker
Good defender
Adept at collecting steals
Solid athlete
Good motor

Needs to improve his shooting
Reluctant to take outside shots
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Unselfish to a fault
Not an elite rebounder
Can be unfocused defensively, is foul prone
Can be too inconsistent in games

RaiQuan Gray is an athletic, high-motor combination forward that may project to be a defensive specialist at the next level.  He has played well against high-level competition, as he’s had 12 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists in a win over Indiana, and he also scored 17 points in a win over Louisville.

On the other hand, he can be quite inconsistent, as he’s also had his fair share of woeful shooting nights in which he only scored in single digits this season.  Gray was a solid role player on a very good Florida State team this season.  He’ll need to improve his outside shot and be a more consistent performer in games, but his athleticism, motor, and playmaking potential could make him an intriguing option for NBA teams in the second round range of the 2021 draft.
