Jalen Bridges is an athletic, energetic forward that has played fairly well in his role for Baylor this season. He started his collegiate career at West Virginia before later transferring to Baylor, and he’s excelled as a defensive-minded, hustle player this year. He will need to improve his jump shot, but he could project into a defensive specialist role at the NBA level.
