2012 NBA Draft Prospects: Arnett Moultrie Scouting Report Video

Arnett Moultrie left the Mississippi St. Bulldogs after his junior year, averaging 16.4 points and 10.5 rebounds this past season. The 6-foot-10 power forward/center is now poised to be a first-round draft choice and potentially a late-lottery draft pick.

For a refresher on Moultrie's strengths and weaknesses and a profile of the big man, SB Nation Studies has produced this profile:


At 230 pounds, Moultrie can likely still add some weight to his frame without sacrificing any basketball ability. His upside could be as good as Jermaine O'Neal's, or he could be more like Marreese Speights, a player who went 16th overall just a few years ago.

Moultrie, though, is concentrating on the now, just waiting to be drafted. Once he hears his name called, puts on his new team's cap and then signs his contract, the real work will begin.

2012 NBA Draft Prospects: Kendall Marshall Scouting Report Video

Kendall Marshall isn't the flashiest player in the 2012 NBA Draft, but there's a pretty good chance he ends up being the best point guard when it all is said and done. His season ended unfortunately early due to injury, causing the North Carolina Tar Heels an earlier-than-planned exit during the NCAA Tournament.

Marshall's not a gifted scorer and isn't going to wow anyone with his athleticism, but there are quite a few things he's better than average at on the basketball court. For more on that, SB Nation Studios has put together a nice little scouting report on the man some know as "Butter."

It's tough to compare anyone to Mark Jackson, a point guard that grasps basketball so well that he's already an NBA head coach, but it obviously bodes well for Marshall that he's earning that type of comparison this early in his career.

2012 NBA Draft Prospects: Tyler Zeller Scouting Report Video

Tyler Zeller isn't going to be the sexiest pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, but the four-year power forward for the North Carolina Tar Heels seems like he'll be around the NBA for a long time. He comes from a pretty solid basketball family and continued to improve while in college, unlike some players who stagnate after their initial couple of seasons.

For those unfamiliar with Zeller's game, the crew over at SB Nation's production studio has put together an excellent synopsis of him in their scouting report video.

The Brook Lopez comparison seems to be a bit on the optimistic side, but Zeller could get there if he continues to improve. The P.J. Brown comparison isn't awful, but Zeller likely is going to surprise people once he gets to the NBA with his shooting touch and versatility that didn't quite show through during his college career.

2012 NBA Draft Prospects: Perry Jones III Scouting Report Video

Perry Jones III likely would have been a Top 5 pick in last year's NBA Draft. The Baylor Bears product was unable to help himself out as much as he would've liked this season, though, and he now finds himself on the bubble of the 2012 lottery.

Jones is a skilled player and has great size for what he does, but he's still a bit of an enigma in this year's class. SB Nation has put together a video scouting report for those looking to get more familiar with Jones leading up to this year's draft.

It's probably not a good thing to be compared to Anthony Randolph considering the current power forward for the Minnesota Timberwolves has yet to put it all together -- therefore limiting the ridiculous upside he once had -- but that seems to be a pretty apt comparison at this point in the process.

2012 NBA Draft Prospects: Thomas Robinson Scouting Report Video

The Charlotte Bobcats will miss out on Anthony Davis, barring a miracle, but there are still some very talented big men available with the No. 2 pick. The forerunner to get selected at that second spot is probably Kansas' Thomas Robinson. T-Rob averaged a double-double in his junior season, leading the nation in rebounds and leading Kansas all the way to the National Championship game. The power forward will certainly be off the board within the first five picks Thursday night.

Robinson was a bench player his sophomore year, but emerged in his junior season as a relentless rebounder who never seems to be out of a play. His size - 6-foot-8, 240 pounds - should translate to the next level, but there is some concern that his offensive game isn't fully suited yet for the pros. That said, we're basing everything we know of Robinson on his one phenomenal junior season - Robinson could certainly take a potent collegiate post scoring game and develop it into something special on the professional level.

2012 NBA Draft Prospects: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Scouting Report Video

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will certainly be a lottery pick in the upcoming 2012 NBA Draft, and almost certainly a top-five pick, but his fate is far from sealed. Unlike fellow Kentucky star Anthony Davis, who is a sure-fire No. 1 overall pick, Kidd-Gilchrist could go anywhere in the top five. He has stiff competition from Thomas Robinson, Bradley Beal and Harrison Barnes at the top of the draft, and his status as a 'tweener might mean he's not a perfect fit for anyone.

Kidd-Gilchrist has the athleticism and varied offensive game to contribute anywhere, but there are legitimate concerns about his 'tweener status. He might be too small to defend most NBA 3's and not quite quick enough to defend top-notch 2's in the NBA. He's also going to need to improve his jump shot if he's going to be a starting guard in the NBA, but his physical tools and production in college suggest that he'll find a way to make the transition to the NBA, even if he's not an obvious cookie-cutter fit for anyone.
