Arizona Wildcats’ Grant Jerrett’s NBA Draft Stock
Grant Jerrett was nowhere near the best player for the Arizona Wildcats in the 2012-13 college basketball season, but he still decided to declare for the 2013 NBA Draft after one season with the team. So, how is that draft stock looking for the one-and-done player?
Jerrett seems like he will get picked up by some team, with his stock ranging from the mid second round all the way to the late second round. Many mock drafts are saying different things on where he will land, which seems about right, since NBA teams did not get to see a whole lot of him.
Jerrett was a freshman this season and he only averaged 17.8 minutes per game. He would have likely had a big impact on Arizona in the 2013-14 college basketball season if he would have returned, but apparently he thought he was ready for the pros.
He is 6’10”, so the size is there and he can hit the three-ball, making 32 threes, while shooting 40.9 percent from behind the arc. He only averaged 5.3 points per game and 3.6 rebounds per game, but that had a lot to do with his playing time.
It will be very interesting to see how he pans out at the next level, since he did not play that long in college hoops. Still, his draft stock is pretty good for a player that was only seventh on the team in scoring and sixth in rebounds per game.
So, whether if it will be in the mid second round or later, Jerrett should get drafted, which is the first step to hopefully a successful NBA career.
