D.J. Hogg is a skilled swingman that can shoot and pass the basketball. He is a good, but not a great athlete, but his lack of explosiveness may make it difficult for him to routinely get all the way to the basket to garner scores off the dribble or to defend quicker players in games.
Right now, he looks to be a borderline second round candidate. He has great size that enables him to shoot over most defenders, but he an be quite streaky from the field. If he continues to improve his overall game, Hogg could end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
