(CHICAGO) – With their first pick in the first round of the NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls chose Florida State forward Patrick Williams. Draft expert say he has an ideal physical profile for a forward at 6 foot 8, 225 pounds, with a wingspan around 7-foot. His length and athleticism to defender smaller players, plus a powerful frame that should allow him to switch onto big men. Williams also showed some flashes of touch shooting off the dribble from midrange, as well as stepping into spot-up 3-pointers confidently. Hit 84% of his free throw attempts. Williams is the second-youngest player in this draft class. Somewhat of a late bloomer who appears to have considerable upside. However, the experts say his intensity level and effectiveness defensively come and go.
