Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent shooter
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Very good rebounder
Decent defender
Solid athlete
Solid motor

Cons:

Streaky shooter
May struggle to consistently create his own shot
Needs to improve his playmaking skills

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 second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
