E.J. Liddell Draft Profile


With a muscular and rugged frame, E.J. Liddell is capable of playing bigger than his actual size. He played at the center position on numerous occasions in college and could project as a small-ball center in the NBA as well. Liddell is one of the most versatile defenders in this year’s draft class. He made significant improvements as a perimeter defender from his sophomore to junior seasons. His versatility will give teams the peace of mind to have him switch on pick and rolls. On the offensive end, Liddell brings a number of post moves to the table. When facing up, he poses as a dual-threat given that he can both knock down mid-range jumpers and explode past defenders on the bounce.


Although Liddell has the framework of being a solid offensive big, his tendency to dribble loosely in college could cost him at the next level. In addition to how he handles the basketball, he will also need to improve the quickness of his first step. As the featured scorer at Ohio State, Liddell sometimes would play his way into unwinnable situations. Following the 2022 NBA Draft, his new coaches will need to work with him on improving his decision-making and floor awareness.
