Carrick Felix, SG, Arizona St.
A participant in the 2013 dunk contest on Final Four weekend, Felix is one of the more athletic players in the Draft. He played two seasons at the College of Southern Idaho (the same school Pierre Jackson attended prior to Baylor) before transferring to Arizona State. He will turn 23 in August, so Felix is a little old for his class. However, he is quick, an excellent finisher, excels in transition and rebounds well for his position (8.1 per game last year). According to Draft Express, Felix is a capable spot-up shooter and decent passer. The main drawback offensively, though, is that he tends to have trouble creating his own shot and lacks a mid-range game. Mock drafts typically place Felix towards the end of the second round.
“Standing 6-foot-6 with good length and a wiry strong frame, Felix is an excellent athlete overall, being both quick on the move and very explosive and reactive getting off his feet around the basket,” Joe Treutlein wrote on Draft Express. “He possesses ideal physical attributes for the shooting guard position at the next level and could fare well as a small forward as well, which is probably the position his skill set is currently best suited for.”
