Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez will both turn a year older this week. The couple, who have been dating since March, celebrated their birthdays together on Saturday in Miami.
Adebayo is one of the tougher prospects to peg right now in the draft. On the plus side, his athleticism and defensive skill is quite strong. He’s a decent rim protector at 6-10, and he can move his feet well on the perimeter against smaller players.
But the downsides are pretty clear. There isn’t much offensive polish or skill. Clearly, he’s a player that has gotten by thus far in his career by being bigger and stronger than everyone. That is still the case against most college athletes, but even the slight uptick in athleticism has hindered him. The bigger concern is rebounding, where Adebayo’s defensive rebounding rate of 14.7 is just two percent higher than teammate Isaiah Briscoe’s. Briscoe’s a feisty rebounder, but he’s also 6-foot-2 and should not be comparable to a monster like Adebayo.
I don’t think this ends up being a Cliff Alexander situation, but Adebayo does need to show some further skill to solidify his standing to scouts.
While Buffalo’s draft selection of Zay Jones might seem like Watkins insurance, the second-round pick is an ideal No. 2 for Dennison’s offense. The shorter routes on which Jones thrived at ECU will be utilized in Buffalo, and Cheap Jerseys From USA the rookie is talented enough all-around to make plays Cheap Jerseys Hockey anywhere on the field.
Andre Holmes, Philly Brown, Brandon Tate, Walter Powell and Rod Streater lead a group that will fight for snaps behind the top two receivers, but given Watkins’ injury history, expect the Bills to carry more receivers on their roster than they otherwise would.
