2009 Scouting Report:
Strengths: Despite being an underclassmen, Hansbrough has the leadership abilities and court savvy that many seniors lack … Approaches each game with a high intensity level and great determination … Has an excellent understanding of how to use his body and strength to score in the low post … Does a great job of establishing position in the low post … Very patient when creating shots, scores on bigger opponents using his strength and determination … Has a decent assortment of offensive moves such as a jump hook, up and under and decent spin move … Owns a great pair of hands that have a rare combination in that they are both incredibly strong and soft enough to catch most passes thrown in the post … Controls the boards thanks to his tenacity and body strength … Has shown the ability to face-up and hit the perimeter jumpshot out to 15 feet … Because of his physical style of play, Hansbrough does a great job of drawing fouls from opposing defenders … he's able to capitalize on this with his solid free throw shooting ability … Has an uncanny knack of scoring after contact occurs in the paint … Defensively he does an admirable job of keeping opposing players between himself and the basket … Shows good touch around the basket on flip-ins, lay-ups and put-backs … Runs the court well and is fast enough to beat opponents down the floor on fast breaks … Has a tremendous work ethic which has enabled him to improve in numerous facets of the game ...

Weaknesses: One of Hansbrough’s most glaring weaknesses is that he isn’t a superior athlete … He doesn’t show much vertical explosiveness and lacks super quickness … Has shown that he can be disrupted offensively when guarded by taller more athletic players … Defensively his lack of explosiveness and wingspan doesn’t allow him to be much of a shot blocker … Although he is an adequate post defender his average lateral quickness will hurt his perimeter offense … Still needs to develop his post footwork as he picks up travel violations from time to time … Although he has shown a good array of moves with his back to the basket, he'll need to polish them to have the ame success againt the NBA elite … He could stand to become more comfortable facing the basket … The fact that he is a year older than most in his class has led some to suggest that he is close to his peak in development …

Tyler is from my state and looks like my cousin. I think they underrate him a little as he compares favorably to Sean May from 05 North Carolina.

tyler should at least be picked #1 overall in the draft because he is the most physical and explosive player in the 2008 NCAA roster
