Jeff Taylor

SF Vanderbilt 6’7” 210 lbs 5/23/89

After a productive freshmen year, Taylor is one of the top returning stars in college. Taylor has an NBA body and is a great athlete but needs to prove he is a complete player.

Taylor can jump out of the gym and looks impressive on the court. He still needs to show the ability to shoot, as he had little range on his inconsistent jumper. He is able to get to the rim and has NBA finishing ability. One of the more impressive things about Taylor is his defensive ability due to his length, quickness, and leaping ability.

Taylor will be able to play right away in the NBA because he can play on the ball defense and will be able to run the court and finish. If he develops a more consistent jumper Taylor could shoot up the draft boards of teams.
