Summary:

Rawle Alkins is an athletic combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He is a strong finisher that can garner scores off the dribble as well as in transition, and he also can knock down plenty of threes.

Plus, he also is a good defensive player, as he has quick feet that allows him to guard multiple positions.  However, he can be entirely too turnover prone on offense, and he has not rebounded the ball very well at Arizona in the early going.

Right now, Alkins could likely go anywhere from the late first to the second round.  With his skill set, he could end up being a Gerald Henderson type of player in this league.
