Position: Power Forward

Career Stats: 10.4 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 0.8 assists and 1.9 blocks

Strengths: Christian Wood is a long, athletic big man with elite size. Wood can get to the rim quickly and has a good first step. Wood can jump through the gym and is dangerous in transition. Wood runs the floor well for a man his size. Wood isn’t afraid of the bright lights and played his best in big games. Wood shot 74.7 percent from the free throw line. Wood has improved greatly as a rebounder and has good instincts. Wood is an excellent defender with elite shot blocking ability. Wood plays very hard and with a ton of energy. Christian Wood works hard and doesn’t come with any real off-the-court issues. Wood won’t turn 20 years old until November.

Weaknesses: Christian Wood is extremely thin and will need to bulk up in weight and strength. Wood struggles to finish through contact. Wood settles for poor shots, especially deep where he shot just 26.1 percent from downtown. Wood needs to develop a more consistent shot. Wood tends to force the issue and can be turnover prone.

Projection: Christian Wood is one of the more intriguing players in this year’s class, as he’s full of potential and upside. Wood is somebody who is just scratching the surface and could be a terrific pro. I’d spend a middle first round pick on Wood in a heartbeat, as he’s only going to improve and could develop into an All-Star caliber player within three or four years.
