Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
The player who goes by "Bones" could move up a few notches on the draft list after a stellar performance at the NBA combine.
Hyland showed off his 3-point range and routinely shot from well from behind the line to show NBA teams he is a ready-made long-range artist. He made 69 3-pointers for the Rams last season and 132 in two seasons.
Hyland averaged 19.5 points and 4.7 rebounds last season while winning Atlantic 10 Player of the Year honors. He will be a capable scorer off the bench as a rookie and should eventually compete to be a starting shooting guard.
Hyland, who turns 21 in September, averaged just 2.1 assists but part of that is because he didn't have a lot of help offensively. He hoisted 340 shots in 24 games, so he wasn't looking to dish once the ball arrived in his hands.
His slight frame will initially be a problem and Hyland will need to put on some pounds to deal with the physical pounding that takes place during an NBA season.
He should find his place as a defender though bigger shooting guards may initially cause him problems. Hyland did notch 45 steals last season.
ANALYSIS
Positives: Hyland's 3-point shooting range is impressive and he will make an immediate impact as a shooter. He is used to being the best player on his team and won't back down against the rise in competition. Hyland's defensive abilities will create turnovers.
Negatives: There is a reason why he earned the nickname "Bones" so expect him to be spending a lot of time in the weight room as a rookie. His passing skills will need to be developed as he will surely be asked to play some point guard. Guarding bigger guards will be challenging early in his career.
