2. Quenton Jackson, SG, Texas A&M
We’ve discussed Jackson’s skills in the past, but it’s worth going over again given how he’s carved himself into an ultimate Sixth Man throughout his career. Jackson could be someone that eventually sneaks into a rotation thanks to his blend of quickness and scoring.
Mainly as a Sixth Man, Jackson averaged 14.8 points per game on 49/34/83 shooting splits. A second-team All-SEC performer, Jackson blends his tremendous finishing skills with some feistiness on the defensive end and a penchant for taking and making some big shots.
The Toronto Raptors could develop Quenton Jackson.
The Aggies tried their best to hide Jackson on the defensive end, as his extremely skinny frame is sure to be focused on when evaluators try to discover his true potential in the pros. After starting out in JUCO, Jackson will come into the NBA as an older prospect with less developmental upside.
Jackson needs to be on a strict bulk-up diet of cheeseburgers and carbs before the Raptors can feel comfortable about him defending professional guards. If he gets his weight up and keeps that explosion that made him such a problematic college player to defend, he could be a steal early on.
