NBA Draft Profile: Jeff Taylor
Jeff Taylor SF- 6’5, 213lbs.
Jeff Taylor may be the most athletic wing player available in this year’s draft. The Swedish born high flier has an NBA ready body but developed a reputation for being a one trick pony. While he was amongst the nation’s best in terms of finishing around the rim, his woeful shooting percentages stood out.
Taylor used his senior season to allay those fears, displaying a markedly improved shooting stroke to go along with better decision-making. Taylor not only improved his jump-shot, but his shooting percentage as a whole ranked as one of the best for small forward’s around the country. NBA teams will love Taylor’s constant quest to better his game.
Kyle Nelson of Draft Express writes that “Taylor's offensive game remains a work in progress, he is still an outstanding defender who should be able to contribute immediately in the NBA on that end of the floor."
