Here we go… it’s that time of year again!

That time where we all are glued to College ball games, and checking stats and reports on the new young ‘uns coming through.

If you followed us through last season, you will know we had our eyes peeled for most players that were finding themselves rising and dropping down mock draft lists.

Last year we picked out 3/4 players each week and gave you our rundown on each players strengths, weaknesses and the general feelings around the net regarding said players.

Currently there is 206 days until the 2013 Draft, so that gives us and yourselves to stick with us at NBA Nation Australia as we find at dissect the stars of tomorrow.

To kick start my Draft watch this year, I’ll start with the player that is currently topping the Mock Drafts that matter…

 

Cody Zeller – Power Forward/Center

This powerful PF/C from Indiana, has been the talk of people close to the League for sometime. Brother of Cleveland rookie Tyler, Cody plays his college ball out of his hometown. A very smart player with a basketball I.Q years beyond his young age, Cody not only has a good brain but is very skillful for a big man. Cody can at times be caught charging up court and catching defences off while he picks up easy baskets. Despite standing at 6’11”, Zeller is very versatile and is very active even when off the ball. Zeller has a great physical frame, and still has room to bulk up more. Has a pretty decent jump-shot, and tends to hit his free throws.
