Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Good rebounder for his size

DeJon Jarreau is a tall, athletic playmaker that could project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA. He has good size and athleticism to play the point, and he is a solid defender amongst prospects that play that position. He also is starting to consistently play well on the offensive end this year.
Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2021 draft. He has flown under the radar as a draft prospect, but he had a very good senior season, and he could end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
