Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
After posting 16.9 points and 8.7 rebounds as a sophomore, Gafford was deemed ready to make the jump to the NBA. He often turned in some of his best performances against Southeastern Conference competition, so he wasn't padding numbers against lesser athletes.
He's a presence in the lane at 6-foot-10 and 240 pounds. Yet for a big guy, he receives positive grades for his energy level, so that enthusiasm could be a perk that helps him rise a few spots in the draft.
He appears nicely motivated on the court, though some gaps in his development might raise some concerns.
ANALYSIS
He could overpower college players at times in the lane, but that luxury won't exist in the NBA. To compensate for that, he'll need to improve his shooting touch because he hasn't shown much range. His shooting tends to come up regularly as a reason for some of his declining grades.
At best, Gafford might project as a role player, but that could bode well in the right system and he could collect rewards offensively if he's with the ideal teammates.
For a player who often has had his way in terms of athleticism, he'll have to embrace the notion of gaining the strength needed to so some of the things at the professional level that have come naturally to him at this point.
His defense erases some mistakes because of his shot-blocking but other areas on that end of the court might need some work.
Projection: Mid-to-late first round
