We knew coming in that redshirt freshman Ben McLemore had talent and athleticism, but we weren't sure how it would translate. It turns out McLemore might just be the top shooting guard prospect in the country, as he's illustrated a number of NBA tools in just eight games for Kansas.
He's averaging 16 points; however, his draft stock won't depend on his college statistics.
McLemore's 31 percent three-point mark is not an accurate portrayal of how his jumper projects. With picturesque mechanics and a fluid delivery, he'll be used as a spot-up target and long-range threat and should only improve with more reps from behind the arc.
Attacking the rim, McLemore is nearly a lock for two points with explosive hops and strength as a finisher.
Originally thought of as a potential mid-first rounder or two-year collegiate athlete, McLemore looks like he might be the Bradley Beal of this year's draft. Teams will throw out his percentages in a methodical offense and focus on his upside as a starting-caliber off-guard.
