2024 Draft Profile - Zach Edey

Kevin O'Connor - The Ringer - June 17th: "Hard-to-stop interior scorer, not just because of his sheer size but also because of his skill and touch. He does a great job of using his massive frame to seal off positioning and make himself available for interior feeds."

NBA Draft Room - June 16th: "Edey has some question marks about how his game will translate to the NBA; can he defend at the NBA level and keep up with the speed of the game? But he’s also an impactful presence in the paint and could bring big production in short spurts."

Jonathan Givony - ESPN - June 7th: "He proved nearly unstoppable in the paint at the college level, drawing fouls, crashing the offensive glass and dismantling defenses with his screening and the incredible gravity he offers diving to the rim in pick-and-roll, helping Purdue shoot 40% from the 3-point line.

Sam Vecenie - The Athletic - June 5th: "Edey improved defensively over his time in college, becoming an impactful drop-coverage pick-and-roll defender who takes up enough space to dissuade guard from driving and finishing around the basket. The issue with his fit in the NBA is obvious: He’s a 7-4 giant who doesn’t move particularly well laterally."

Colin Ward-Henninger - CBS Sports - June 4th: "Edey should block shots immediately, but the danger comes when he's out in space against NBA-level speed and shot-making. His offensive role is a bit murky, but he should be able to get a few touches here and there in the post, where he dominated in college."

Zach Buckley - Bleacher Report - June 4th: "He's nearly 7'4" in socks with an almost 7'11" wingspan, and he is super-skilled around the basket as a post scorer, rebounder and rim protector."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - May 30th: "At the least, Zach Edey may have opened scouts' imaginations at the combine with the comfort level he demonstrated making jump shots during drills. Regardless, for a center who measures just under 7'4" in socks with a near 7'11" wingspan, his touch and footwork have gotten sharp enough for scouts to picture a useful low-post scorer and offensive rebounder.
