#2 – JaJuan Johnson
JaJuan Johnson is 30 pounds and/or a consistent 3-point shot away from being a superstar. He took the four college years to fully develop his game, to the point that whichever team picks him might be set at PF for the next decade.
We are extremely high on JaJuan so we made him our #2 ranked PF, BUT! We need to see just a bit more defensive integrity and intensity. JaJuan either has to commit to being a long ball threat or stop taking them.

Out of 138 players:
· JaJuan Johnson would be a first round pick in 3 of the 4 metrics. We slot him as a Top 10 Pick, but only if a team is looking for offense at the PF position.
· He can play both PF and Center, and the 3pt shot is the decision he will have to make – stop or improve.
· Considered as a whole (BPM), as well as for each specialty (PCM for Production; DIR for Defense; and TPA (Talent/Skill-set).
