Zach Edey is a strong, physical center that can overpower opponents in the middle to score, rebound, and block shots in the paint. He’ll need to expand upon his skill set on offense and show that he can match up to quicker, more athletic opponents. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2023 draft.
