3. SG Robert Woodard II, Mississippi State

This is a real intriguing prospect out of Mississippi State, folks. Robert Woodard II is technically both a guard and forward. He can play either two or three, and he is one of the more athletic guys in the class.

There are usually one or two of these guys in every draft, and they are hard to ignore. Sometimes, they don’t pan out to be great pros. But, if a team can develop Woodard into the great role player he could be, he’ll be worth the first-round capital.

Woodard is going to be a guy who does a lot of his work around the rim, whether it’s in the rebounding department or on the fast break finishing with authority. He reminds some folks a lot of Derrick Jones of the Miami Heat with his skill set.

Last year, he averaged a healthy 11.4 points and 6.5 boards per game, while also shooting a surprisingly efficient 42 percent from three-point range.

Defensively, Woodard has the size and athleticism to be able to guard multiple positions. Once again, the defensive potential is something the Bulls could take the chance on. That’s one area they desperately need.
