Al HorfordHt/Wt: 6-9 / 235 lbs
2007 Draft Profile
Possesses a long, athletic body that is ready for the NBA. Has excellent toughness and doesn't shy away from banging in the paint. A very strong post defender as he’s able to use his body strength to disrupt opposing players from setting up. A solid shot blocker thanks to his timing and great anticipation skills. Attacks the basket with aggression and power. A surprisingly good ball handler and passer for a player his size. Has the ability to hit the 12-15 foot jumper from mid-range. Very quick for a big guy and is able to beat most forwards down the court. Shows an excellent basketball IQ. Offensive skills are raw, with not much of a perimeter game outside 15 feet. He needs to improve his post skills, and has a tendency to be overly aggressive, leading to foul trouble.
