This is when playing for a smaller school in a conference ranked less than a mid-major hurts your draft stock. It also doesn't help that Hofstra didn't make the 2011 NCAA Tournament while conference rivals George Mason University and Old Dominion University got to the big dance.
Yes, Jenkins is more of a scoring Point Guard, but that is how the NBA is trending. He also dished out 4.8 APG so we know he has play-making abilities. Still not convinced? Ponder the stats below and press play!
Out of 138 players:
· Jenkins would be a first round pick in all 4 of the metrics.
· His defense will be another factor pushing him up the charts. Might go early 20’s.
· Still more of Shooting Guard but should not have any problems making the transition.
· Considered as a whole (BPM), as well as for each specialty (PCM for Production; DIR for Defense; and TPA (Talent/Skill-set).
