Moses Moody Highlights
Moses Moody Draft Profile
From a physicality standpoint, Moses Moody stacks up as one of the best prospects in the 2021 NBA Draft class. He is a stellar defensive playmaker, using his strength and size to his advantage as a shot-blocker and perimeter defender. Moody played well in an off-ball role on offense at Arkansas. He has a solid pull-up jumper and also has great rebounding instincts, especially on the offensive glass. Moody complements his on-ball defense with excellent intelligence to disrupt passing lanes and offer help when playing off-ball.
One major knock against Moody in college was his inability to generate quality scoring looks against better defenders. He will need to improve the speed of his release on 3-pointers. Unless Moody greatly improves his ball-handling, it’s tough to project him to be a primary scorer at the NBA level. He will also need to improve as a finisher at the rim.
