John Henson’s ceiling in the NBA is tough to predict, but one thing that’s for sure is that his shot-blocking ability is going to be among the best of the 2012 class.
The former North Carolina Tar Heel averaged 2.9 blocks as a junior last season and is an incredibly long, athletic post player.
At 6’10”, 216 pounds, his position in the NBA is up in the air at this point.
He’ll need to add strength if he’s going to play center, but he’ll need to improve his jumper if he’s going to play power forward.
What we do know however, is that he can block virtually anybody’s shot and his work ethic is right where it should be, making him a potential All-Defensive member as his game continues to develop.
