The 13th spot on the Brew Hoop Draft Board goes to Jamaal Franklin, SG, San Diego State. An ankle injury prevented Franklin from participating at the Draft Combine extensively, but he's still built a decent amount of hype based on a statistical profile that speaks to his high-energy style of play. A shooting guard who can effect the game in multiple ways, Franklin makes up for very marginal shooting skills with fantastic work on the glass (he was 10th in defensive rebound rate among all of college basketball last season), good passing, and versatile defensive ability. He also buoyed his offense by getting to the line more than 8 times per 40 minutes, keeping his TS% at a tolerable 54.0. But he's not going to provide much floor spacing, hitting only about 30% of his three-point shots in college. He's also not a guy you want doing too much off the dribble--his AST/TO ratio has never been above one. But Franklin brings so much energy and athleticism to his position that any team willing to work on his jump shot would gladly take him.
