He’s one of the most versatile players in the draft and an excellent defender. He was a good shooter at Virginia, finishing with a career slash line of .430/.365/.876. His free throw percentage ranked him third all-time in the ACC.

The biggest knock on Brodgon is his age. He’ll be 24 in Dec. and most teams lean more towards young players to develop in the second round than those who are possibly NBA-ready.
