Summary:
David Harrison
David Harrison
Notes: A former McDonald's All-American and top 10 high school prospect. His father is a former NFL player and Harrison also is said to be a pretty impressive football player. Submitted his paper work to the NBA for early entry and hired John Elway's agent, Chris Emens. He's in for sure now.

Upside:Harrison is strong, runs the floor well for a big guy and can put up good numbers when his head is in the game. Has the NBA body and strength scouts are looking for at the position. A good, but not great athlete. He's a big time offensive rebounder and shot blocker. Has improved every year, but hasn't reached the potential scouts had hoped he would.

Downside: Questions about his maturity level and dedication to the game are big, big issues for scouts. Still very raw. Doesn't have great hands. Not an explosive jumper. He's a legit seven footer but has a smallish wing span. His defensive effort can be lack luster.

Insider Projection: Scouts don't really like his game, but considering he's the only American 7-footer in college with any kind of game right now, he's going to get the benefit of the doubt. He was reportedly destroyed by BYU center Rafael Araujo in a recent workout in LA fueling more questions about his toughness and desire. Someone will take a chance on him in the late first/ early second round. Think Michael Olowokandi, folks.
