Nathan Mensah is an athletic, energetic big man that projects to be a rim protector in the NBA.  He hasn’t quite played nearly as well on offense this year, but he is a very athletic center that can certainly catch lobs and finish plays above the rim.  He’s also a very good shot blocker, but also can be too aggressive at times and foul prone on the defensive end.  Right now, he may be a long shot to be drafted, but his size, athleticism, and skill set could enable him to make his way to the NBA one day.
