    Here is Scott's scouting report.

    http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/...tt-6482/stats/

    and another Washington Post article on him:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...tQ4V_blog.html
    More than anything, it’s Scott’s multi-dimensional game that has some enamored with him. Already armed with a reliable outside jumper and an array of moves with his back to the basket, the 6-8 Scott has spent the weeks leading up to the draft improving his perimeter game, working out with guards like Syracuse’s Dion Waiters, Xavier’s Tu Holloway, Georgetown’s Hollis Thompson and Villanova’s Maalik Wayns in Las Vegas earlier this spring.

    He also had to watch as NBA teams “poked and probed and stretched” the surgically repaired ankle that cost him most of the 2010-11 season during the pre-draft combine in Chicago last month. All the X-rays and MRIs showed no issues, so Scott will be able to watch the draft with his family and friends in his home town of Chesapeake, Va. without any health-related concerns.

    As for what sort of player his new team will be getting, Scott made it clear his prolific senior season, and strong pre-draft showing, are only the start of an impact career at the professional level.

    “Guarding players smaller and quicker than me, that’s what I need to continue to do,” Scott said. “But I honestly think my bread and butter is at the four [power forward] and I can just do some three [small forward] stuff. I’ll be a mismatch.”

    GM Danny Ferry said #Hawks looked to trade up in 1st round starting around 12th pick but opportunity wasn't there
    why 12? Who was there that would have cost us someone like Smith to move up?

    Crazy Machado didn't get drafted. I can bet he will be on an NBA team when the season starts. His passing and vision is too good.

    Just watch this guy:

    Oh did I mention he lead the nation in assists?

    Bio: From NBA.com [Mike Scott]

    Strengths:
    *Physical
    *Great rebounder
    *Competes
    *Can score in the post and face up

    Weaknesses:
    *Doesn’t have prototypical NBA size

    NBA projection:
    Scott will need to impress in individual workouts to work his way into the draft. He’s not the greatest athlete and he’s undersized for a power forward, but other players fitting that description have found their way into the NBA and forged decent careers. Scott is a versatile scorer, loves to rebound and has a high motor, so even if he gets to an NBA team via free agency, he’ll compete for a roster spot.

    2011-12 Season:
    Scott put together his best season, earning various All-America honors and being chosen first-team All-ACC. He led the ACC in field-goal percentage and was second in scoring, fifth in rebounding and seventh in free-throw percentage.

    Key statistics:
    18.0 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 1.2 apg, 2.1 tpg, 0.7 spg, 0.5 bpg, 31.2 mpg, .563 FG, .300 3PT, .808 FT

    Cool statistic:
    Scott was chosen the ACC’s player of the week four times this season, the most in school history. Even Ralph Sampson (1982-83) earned league POW honors just three times in a season.

    Reminds me of:
    Paul Millsap

    What Insiders Say:
    Virginia coach Tony Bennett
    “He's carried us all year. He's had a terrific year and there wasn't a lot of help for him, but I think he will remember this senior year as a special one, as I will.”

    What Outsiders Say:
    George Mason coach Paul Hewitt
    “Mike Scott is, to me, the key to the whole thing because they can play through him. He only got three shots tonight, but it didn't seem to affect his effort. He continued to play and be a very big part of what they were doing."

    Miami coach Jim Larranaga
    "Mike Scott is a handful. He's having a great year. His ability to score both on the block and from the perimeter puts a lot of pressure on opponents' defenses and opens up a lot of things for their guard play.”
    Millsap wasn't the first comparison that came to mind, but yeah it makes sense. I'll gladly take that.

    Bio: From NBA.com [John Jenkins]

    Strengths:
    *Deadly jump shooter
    *Quick release
    *Crafty scorer around the rim
    *Very good free-throw shooter

    Weaknesses:
    *Needs to improve ball handling
    *Could become a better passer
    *Not an overwhelming athlete
    *Doesn’t have prototypical NBA shooting guard size

    NBA projection:
    Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings solicited feedback from the NBA, and opinions were mixed about whether Jenkins would be a late first-round or early second-round pick. So in some ways, Jenkins gambled by coming out of school after his junior season. But he’s a big-time, game-breaking shooter, and the NBA needs shooters. The question will be whether he can get find his own shot.

    2011-12 Season:
    Jenkins led the Southeastern Conference in scoring for the second consecutive season, becoming the first player since LSU’s Ronnie Henderson in 1995-96 to do so. He made 134 3-pointers as a junior, which tied the SEC single-season record set by former Vanderbilt star Shan Foster. Jenkins was also a first-team All-SEC selection.

    Key statistics:
    19.9 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.2 apg, 1.6 tpg, 0.8 spg, 33.6 mpg, .474 FG, .439 3PT, .837 FT

    Cool statistic:
    Even though every team’s scouting report focused on stopping Jenkins, he managed to score in double figures in his last 68 games and make a 3-pointer in his last 60 games. Jenkins failed to make at least one 3 in only four of his 98 career games.

    Reminds me of:
    J.J. Redick

    What Insiders Say:
    Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings
    “His defense is 100 percent better. He's a very dependable defensive player for us now. John has really given us so much more than he gave us a year ago — leadership, talking, energy. He's not a guy that's just running around out here trying to figure out where his next shot comes from.
    “Obviously the thing that stands out to anyone is what a terrific shooter he is. But he’s better off the dribble. He’s becoming an assists guy. He’s really given us so much more than he did a year ago. He’s trying to lead the team and play the game the way it should be played.”

    What Outsiders Say:
    Georgia coach Mark Fox
    "He is the greatest shooter that I have ever coached against. He's the kind of player that you just cannot make any mistakes against or he'll make you pay."
    It goes back to Drew's point (I can't believe I'm agreeing with him so much these days lol) about the Hawks already having slashers and scorers, but no shooters right now. Joe, Al and Josh are all good passers, so as long as they aren't ISO ISO ISO he will get plenty of open looks.

    I liked his game, think we mentioned him in the other thread. Have to see how the UDFA list shakes out.

    Been at work until now and have looked over the scouting reports and videos and I think we did a good job. B+ because you prolly got two guys who should contribute next year especially Jenkins and I watch a lot of ACC BBall because im a Tech fan and Scott is a talented individual. Don't know if it means anything, but they drafted a power forward for what its worth. For those that like the San Antonio model these are similiar picks to what they make. Deep breaths remember free agency and trades will prolly come.

    Good night to established guys. Nice. Consistency!

    More... just because.
    23. John Jenkins | 6-4 | 212 | SG | Vanderbilt | 21
    The Hawks land the best pure shooter in the draft (last year he shot 10% better from beyond the arc than Bradley Beal did). He makes up for his lack of physical tools with a high basketball IQ, specifically knowing how to play off the ball. He might have some issues defending the 2-guard spot on the NBA level, but he should have a long career as a 3-point specialist. –Seth Sommerfeld
    43. Mike Scott | 6-8 | 237 | PF | Virginia | 23
    Mike Scott has a mature and versatile game. Virginia’s slow-it-down style of play made Scott seem like a worse offensive player than he actually is. While he’s undersized for the power forward position, he’s got a good face up jump shot. –Seth Sommerfeld

    The Bulls have until July 10 to announce whether they will pick up team options on Kyle Korver, Ronnie Brewer and C.J. Watson. None are expected to return, although Korver remains a slight possibility even though his option is the most expensive at $5 million
    KC Johnson / Chicago Tribune

    Hawks could use a perimeter defender like Brewer (he currently earns about $4M). Scoring wings always torch us.

    Most everyone in here watches a lot of college bball, so I'm bumping this thread for year-round discussions about the 2013 Draft, prospects you guys like who might enter, post mock drafts, a gamethread for the upcoming NCAA season, etc.

    Never too early to look at what the "experts" have projected for us in 2013 mock drafts. (Obviously, could change):
    (1st Rd) Atlanta: Doug McDermott 6-8 225 SF Creighton Jr.
    (2nd Rd) Atlanta: Dexter Strickland 6-3 175 PG/SG North Carolina Sr
    (2nd Rd) Atlanta: Aziz NDiaye 7-0 260 C Washington Sr
    NBADraft.net
    (1st Rd) Atlanta Hawks: B.J. Young, PG, Arkansas, 6-3, Fr.

    Young has declared for the 2012 draft, but would be wise to return to school to help his status as a first-round pick.

    A few guys I have my eyes on if the Hawks can move up in this draft:

    The obvious: Shabazz and Nerlens.

    But here are a few others I thik can fit in with the Hawks even if they stay as is:

    Ben McLemore: Shooting Guard out of Kansas. Very quick, AThletic, goes to the rim and nocks down the 3. My concern is if the 6'4/ 6'5 listed is legit? If it isn't he may be to much like Lou.

    Micheal Carter Williams: This guy, I'm becoming a fan of. 6'5/6'6 PG who can really handle and pass the ball. His jumper needs work, a lot of work. But he could come in and defend the two with his size and athleticism and free jeff or Lou up to do what they do best, attack the rim while he runs the offense. He may actually be around in the 20's from what some mocks say.

    Alex Len: I don't thik he's great, but he is a true center.

    Willie Clauey-Stein: Not NBA ready, so we may have to wait a year or two for him to see significant time on the floor. But he has crazy athelticism for a 7 footer and is a good defender already.
