Nate BrumfieldHt/Wt: 6-5 / 260 lbs
Team: Oklahoma Baptist
2010 Draft Profile - Nate BrumfieldStrengths: With pinpoint shooting accuracy, Brumfield led the NAIA in scoring percentage (68.3), and was in the top five for points per game (22.2) and total season scoring (777). When he's not making the opponent's defense pay dearly, he's making on-the-money passes and assists to teammates and making stellar defensive plays of his own. Brumfield may be the most double- and triple-teamed player in small college ball this year due to his consistent ability to make plays. There's a reason that he was voted the MVP of the NAIA and led his team (Oklahoma Baptist University) to this year's national championship.
Weaknesses: With his background mostly in small college ball, Brumfield lacks wide experience on the world stage, where pressure often runs high. On his most major appearance on national television (CBS Sports, NAIA National Championship), however, he appeared unrattled and made several game-changing plays. Brumfield's size may also be a challenge, although he is certainly not a small man at 6'5. He packs a lot of muscle on his frame, but is not as altitude-rich as some other forwards out there.
Outlook: Given a chance in the NBA, Brumfield shows great potential to continually improve in his ability as a consistent play-maker. Brumfield would likely start out as a great addition to any team's bench, and will only get better with time.
