Benimon, a 6-8, 245-pound forward out of Towson spent his first two seasons with the Georgetown Hoyas as nothing more than a bench player. It wasn't until Benimon transferred to Towson that he provided significant production. He is a dominant rebounder who can finish around the rim. When he gets the ball in the paint, he is also skilled at drawing contact and is an improving free-throw shooter. His most productive season came as a senior when he averaged 18.7 points on 52.9 percent shooting from the field, 11.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.2 blocks in 36 games.

For his career, Benimon averaged 10.1 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists and one block in 128 games.

Some of these prospects, especially the bigger guys first on the list, have some impressive stats. There are some good wing rebounders in there and rebounding typically is a skill that translates from College to the pros.

Will be interesting to see if they draft a PG later on.

They should have Raul Neto this coming year as well as Trey Burke so drafting a true Point Guard would be foolish unless they think the guy can start today. The Jazz now know where they are drafting so it is time they start looking at some potential first round picks and not at a bunch of guys who probably won't even get drafted. Ejim is the only player on this list that is even projected to be drafted! Come on Jazz!
