Andre RobersonHt/Wt: 6-7 / 215 lbs
2013 Draft Profile - Andre RobersonAt 6'7", and 215 lbs, Roberson has become another topic of positional debate when the subject of his NBA future is broached. In one sense Roberson is the victim of his own extraordinary rebounding instincts (number on last year in defensive boards in the NCAA) and of the program he plays for. Not a traditional powerhouse, the Buffalos have used Roberson all over the place, but often as the big man in the post...where his rebounding can be of service. Roberson has good length, but not exceptional, nor is he really a plus leaper, but his hoop intelligence is very high and there is rarely wasted motion in what the silky forward does at both ends. This is not to say he is not a hard worker, because he is. His shot is ok.....and has improved over two years at Colorado. Roberson has drawn comparisons to Shawn Marion, but also to Mike Scott (late of Virginia) and even Ryan Gomes and Corey Higgens. Such a diverse group suggests that it's hard to pin down exactly who Roberson is. A still growing future power forward, or a wing. If a wing, an offense that is predicated on a mid range game, which he has clearly worked at, will still need more than a little refining. The biggest downside is ball handling. If Roberson wants to play the 3, he had better improve that handle. His open long range shots need work, too, but his mechanics seem sound so that is probably just a matter of practice. IF he is a four, then he better start to put on some muscle. Either way, Roberson is an intriguing prospect with no off court concerns.
