Bryce Alford is a talented combo guard that may be one of the best shooters in college basketball. He is an excellent marksman from beyond the arc, and he also can find ways to garner scores in the paint. He also may be a decent athlete that also can run the point if asked to do so.
On the other hand, he may be in between positions, as he will need to prove to teams that he can play the point in the NBA, and he may need to improve defensively at the next level. If he can do these things, he could end up being a solid role player in the league.
