Bottom Line: 

Dwight Powell is an athletic, big and explosive forward, who was one of the stars on the Stanford Sweet 16 team this past season. Powell will need to work on a few things in order to be successful in the NBA, but has a lot of potential. I project the former Stanford baller to be drafted early in the second round of the NBA Draft.
