Lacks an elite first step off the dribble

Summary:

Cassius Winston is a tough, gritty point guard that can effectively run a team with the ball in his hands.  He may not be an especially dynamic playmaker, but he is a very unselfish player that will get everyone involved, and he has the court savvy to get buckets if he needs to.  He had a very good junior season, and Winston is a cerebral playmaker that could be a likely second round pick in the 2020 draft.
