Matt Mobley is an athletic combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He is a prolific scorer that can shoot it and attack the basket to get buckets, and his plus-level athleticism can allow him to be an effective position defender.
However, he’s never really had to play the point, as he’s played the two guard position for pretty much his entire collegiate career, so there may be concerns if he could do so at the next level. Mobley also may be a ball dominant player given his heavy score first tendencies, so there are questions on how well he may adjust to a lesser role once there.
Right now, he has not been getting much draft buzz, and he has been overshadowed by a higher profile teammate and fellow senior, point guard Jaylen Adams. But Mobley’s ability to score and physical tools could help him land on an NBA summer league roster either in 2018 or sometime down the road.
