Summary:

Robert Williams is a very athletic, energetic big man that could be a likely lottery pick in 2018.  He is a high-motor player that is a good inside scorer and rebounder, and he is a terrific shot blocker that can shore up his team’s defense.​

On the other hand, he may need to add an outside shot, and he will also need to expand upon his skill offensively.  But Williams’ vast athleticism, combined with motor and upside could make him a strong bet to be selected early by an NBA team on draft day.
