Jordan Caroline is an athletic, high-motor combo forward that quietly had a solid senior season for Nevada. He is a versatile scorer that can get numerous tough scores around the basket, and he is also quite active on the boards.
On the other hand, he may need to improve his outside shot, and he may have a tendency to play too wildly at times. Also, he will likely need to show that he can play solid defense on a consistent basis, especially against tough teams.
Right now, he has not garnered much draft buzz, but with his skill set, combined with having good athletic gifts and motor, Caroline could end up being a potential second round pick in the future.
