​Summary:

Isaac Copeland is a very athletic combination forward that is projected to be a potential second round prospect for the upcoming draft.  Copeland excels at moving off the ball, as he can score on plenty of hustle plays.  He also has great physical tools to defend multiple positions, though he does not collect many steals or blocks in games.

​Copeland had three up and down years at Georgetown as he was plagued with inconsistent shooting and playing time, but it seems that he is finally starting to find his mark at Nebraska.  Right now, he is starting to shoot the ball much better, and he has been quite productive with his new team.  On the other hand, he may be a mediocre rebounder at best, and he has played on slow paced teams that may make it tough for him to adjust to NBA tempo right away.​

Currently, Copeland may be a borderline second round candidate.  If he improves upon his weaknesses, he could end up being a solid role player in the association.​
