2021 rankings were finalized on 7/29/21.
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Can post up smaller players
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Fairly good rebounder for his size
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Can be reluctant to take outside shots
Can be too passive on offense
Can be undisciplined defensively
Old for a draft prospect, may have limited upside
Damien Jefferson is an athletic, energetic swingman that is having a solid senior season at Creighton. He is playing on one of the best teams in college basketball. Sometimes though, he may not always be assertive enough on offense, and he doesn’t always take enough jumpers in games. Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
