Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Struggles to guard quicker players
A bit undersized for his position
Jamal Shead is an athletic, skilled point guard that can reliably run the team at the point. He led the Houston Cougars to get to the 2022 NCAA Tournament, and he scored 21 points and dished out 6 assists in his team’s surprising win over Arizona in the Sweet 16. He is an underrated prospect that could be a player to watch in the postseason.
