The big man, who connected on 48 percent of his 3-point attempts this season, will come back for another year to impress NBA scouts. That’s a significant development for Gonzaga.
Tillie is not the only intriguing pro prospect on the roster, however. Rui Hachimura, the 6-foot-8 talent, averaged 11.6 PPG, and Zach Norvell Jr. averaged 12.7 PPG and made 39 percent of his 3-pointers. This group will also get another year from savvy point guard Josh Perkins (5.3 APG).
Ozzie Newsome doubles up on tight ends after taking Hayden Hurst in the first round. While Hurst is complete as a blocker and a receiver, Andrews is more of a straight-up move receiver to complement new wideouts Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead.
Key has some great pass-rush upside, but unfortunately, he had a checkered career at LSU both on and off the field, and he couldn’t take full advantage of his wingspan and athleticism. The Raiders are banking on bringing out his best, first in a situational role.
Burks does a little bit of everything well, standing out most in coverage. He’ll be a backup inside linebacker in Mike Pettine’s 3-4 at first.
On the other side of things, the Jazz are just doing their thing. The ball moves, the floor stays spaced and eventually, a good shot is found from a high efficiency area. With Rudy Gobert putting Westbrook in a total and complete bind, it’s pretty simple stuff for Utah.
Some scattered boos around the arena as the Jazz open up a 15-point lead, with the Thunder looking completely a mess.
The Colts go for their second defensive end of the round for their transition to a 4-3. Lewis, like Turay, was taken for his pass-rush ability. Frank Reich is copycatting the Eagles in trying to have a deep rotation to go after quarterbacks. Lewis can slide inside on passing downs.
The Raiders got a more polished and athletic option for left tackle with Kolton Miller in Round 1. Here, they take a small-school project who they hope can round into starting right tackle in time. For now, Parker will learn as a swing reserve.
The Giants are moving to a base 3-4 under James Bettcher, and he goes after a Chandler Jones-like edge rush option. Carter has some first-round traits, but he needs to bulk up and work on his coverage to become a starter and stay on the field beyond obvious passing situations.
