What is Rosco Allen's NBA Draft Stock?

Rosco Allen declared for the NBA draft but will he be selected?

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Stanford forward Rosco Allen unexpectedly declared for the NBA draft back in May, ending his four year career at Stanford. Allen's senior year  was his best, improving in nearly every statistic from the year before. Allen was Stanford's best player last year averaging 15.6 points and 6.5 rebounds per game and earned himself a first team All-PAC-12 selection.

Yet, Allen is most likely to go undrafted. Allen's lack of strength, short wing span, and below average athleticism hurts his stock. Allen can struggle when driving to the basket, making it important for him to be a great three point shooter. But Allen only shot 34% from three last season, a fair percentage, but not good enough.

That said, Allen has still received interest from teams in the NBA. He has had workouts with the Kings, Lakers, and 76ers. There is still is a chance for Allen to get picked later in the second round of the draft. But expect Allen to go undrafted and play overseas next season.
