Take him: Mickey was one of the best shot blockers in college basketball last season and has the athleticism and wingspan (7-foot-3) needed to excel defensively in the NBA. He runs the floor well and could potentially defend up to four positions because of his lateral mobility.

Don't take him: Not very polished on offense. Undersized and effort runs hot and cold.

Notes: Mickey worked out with the Grizzlies. Averaged 15.4 points per game his sophomore year despite limited offensive skill. He led the nation in blocks per game.
