4. Mitchell Robinson
Mitchell Robinson is projected to go in the early to mid 20’s, but his talent dictates he should go much higher. Much, much higher.
He had some issues in college and never actually suited up for a collegiate team. This has caused a lot of NBA teams to back away from Robinson both because they haven’t seen him play against real competition and because there are question marks about his off the court demeanor.
However, he’s one of the most athletic big men in the draft and that’s the main reason teams might be willing to take a flyer on him.
At 6-foot-11, he has a 7-foot-4 wingspan and can jump out of the gym. Even though he can dunk on anyone, he also has nice finesse to be able to finish around the rim in other ways. Furthermore, he brings great shot-blocking and rebounding skills to the table which the Bucks desperately need.
It’s doubtful the Bucks would take a chance on him at No. 17 considering they already have another project in Thon Maker at center. However, if they move down a few spots, Robinson could pop up on their radar and pay off in a big way down the road.
