Neemias Queta is a strong, mobile big man that could project to be a rim protector in the NBA. He is a very good rebounder and shot blocker, and he may have the physical tools to develop into a solid defender at the next level.
He could project to be a rim protector at the next level, but he will need to extend his shooting range and also show that he can guard players out on the perimeter. He will need to show that he can consistently play well against top competition, but right now, Queta projects to be a second round prospect in the 2021 draft.
