#33 Jon Diebler  | G - F

Right-handed… Diebler is an emerging prospect, but won't be climbing up any draft board into the first round with a metamorphosis of extreme athleticism. Diebler is the most dangerous perimeter shooter in the entire country with deep, deep range and tremendous accuracy. He spaces the floor well and waits for the kick-out from one of his fellow guards or the pass-out from Ohio State's forwards. He has a quick trigger to get the shot off in limited space… He has a developing ability to put the ball on the floor, but he is always looking for his own shot. What makes him difficult to defend is you have to play right up on him because his jump shot is lethal and he is working on his ability to put the ball on the deck to drive by the defender because they are so worried about his jumper.

The most glaring weakness for Diebler is his athleticism. He simply isn't an NBA caliber athlete and he can't defend one either. His lack of lateral quickness will make him a defensive liability, but teams will hope to hide him because of his offensive abilities… He doesn't contribute much aside from scoring the basketball. He can move the ball within the flow of the offense, but he isn't a creator, nor a strong distributor and he won't give you much on the boards either…
