2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Has excellent size for a small forward can shoot over most defenders ... Has the ability to use his long arms and agility to beat opposing defenders on penetration to the basket ... Very good offensive player facing the basket due to his ball handling often he can dribble past defenders for easy lay-ups ... Runs the court extremely well and is ambidextrous can finish in transition with both hands ... Good passer looks to find teammates and recognizes when double teams are occurring ... Solid rebounder due to his leaping ability and long arms this also enables him to be a solid shot-blocker ... Smart player who has a great feel for the game and is solid in the fundamental aspects of basketball ... Has a soft touch and decent post moves around the basket when he posts up ... The biggest thing Jeffries has worked on this off-season is his 3-point shot range which has become very consistent ... Has become more aggressive offensively as last year he had a tendency to defer to teammates …

Weakness: Although he has good post moves Jeffries isn’t very comfortable playing with his back to the basket as he is not a big fan of physical play ... Really needs to bulk up and gain more upper body strength as he has the ability to post up it’s just that his lack of strength makes it hard for him to establish an interior presence when rebounding and setting himself offensively ... Although he is getting better in this area his mid-range came could stand to be more consistent ... Perimeter game at times can become very streaky but shot selection could play a part in this as he as a tendency to rely too much on his outside game when penetrating to the basket could be in his best interest ... While he has greatly improved in this aspect from last year Jeffries doesn’t always play consistent as his game by game performance can vary ...
