2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Patient player on offense who doesn't rush many shots ... Uses a nice number of fakes to get his defender in the air for the open look ... Possesses legitimate three point range ... Competent rebounder within his area ... Tough kid who has a ton of confidence is his game ... Not much of a low post scorer but when he does he is able to shoot the nice turnaround jumper... Possesses a good understanding of the game ... Great spot up shooter from mid-range or from behind the three point line ... Moves well without the ball ... Really excels in the high post where he is a threat to do a multitude of things ... Plays every game with intensity like few of his peers can ... Did a great job of becoming one of Florida's team leaders this past season ... Has developed a nice reliable hook shot from the block or in the lane ... His size tends to create mismatches as he can shoot over most players and can post up smaller defenders ...

Weakness: Below average athlete who doesn't have much speed or leaping ability ... Back to the basket moves are rarely used as he isn't very comfortable ... Moves very mechanical there is little to no fluidity in his movements ... Doesn't run the court all that well ... Not a very creative scorer... Lacks the ball handling to take opposing defenders off the dribble ... This could cause him to struggle to get his shot off in the NBA ... Defensively he will have problems guarding player as he lacks the lateral quickness to keep up ... Not a very good shooter off the dribble due to Bonner's slow release ... Because he is such a perimeter oriented player he doesn't draw fouls from his defender... Not a bonafide tweener but enough of one to question who he will be able to guard as power forwards are too strong and small forwards too fast... Lack of athleticism prevents him from getting rebounds out of position ... Will not be a shot blocking force at all despite size due to his lack of explosiveness ...
