Draft History
Drafted in 2015 NBA Draft: 1st Round, 3rd Overall Pick by Philadelphia Philadelphia
DraftSite Scouting Report Strengths: Okafor is certainly the top inside scorer in this draft class. He has incredible size and length, and he has refined his post moves to near perfection in his one year under Coach K. Okafor is a smart enough player to avoid double teams and find teammates when he’s in trouble. He has a nice touch around the rim, and he can rebound very well when he stays focused and determined.

Weaknesses: Okafor is not the explosive athlete that other top five picks usually are. He doesn’t have extreme jumping ability or quickness. Another weakness of his game is his poor free throw shooting. That will have to improve unless he wants to turn into a DeAndre Jordan. It will be interesting to see how Okafor’s lack of athleticism hurts him in the NBA, but his unique inside scoring skills will carry him to the top of the draft class.
