Pros:

Decent shooter
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Can post up smaller players
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Solid rebounder
Decent defender
Above average athlete
Solid motor

Cons:

Streaky shooter
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Needs to improve his playmaking skills
Not an elite ball handler, can be turnover prone
Can be quite foul prone
Not an elite athlete

Summary:

Darius Days is a strong, mobile forward that could project into a 3 and D type of role in the NBA.  He has good size and strength that allows him to finish plays in the paint to score, and he can occasionally knock down some spot-up threes.  He also can get steals and deflections for his team defensively. 

He had a solid junior season, and he shot the ball well, and but he will also need to improve his playmaking skills.  Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
