Monk won't go higher than 5th, maybe even 7th.
Jackson has some mental issues also...
Tatum doesn't have the ceiling of Jackson or Smith...much like Okafor vs Towns or Russell.
Fox is better than Monk...I'd pick him over Monk easily...I'd pick Fultz/Ball/Smith over Monk also.
As for 28th, Ferguson won't be there...he's being mocked 15-20th...
Tatum has as high a ceiling if not higher than Jackson or Smith tbh.
But ceilings aren't everything. But Tatum has a pretty darn solid ceiling.
That said, I lean towards Jackson over him only slightly, but I definitely have him over Smith. I also have Fox and Monk higher than Smith as well.
The obvious stuff about Smith that bothers me
https://youtu.be/YCUHKhywGJ8?t=2m7s Can't beat a PF off dribble
https://youtu.be/dInkJ0CzYpo?t=1m36s Matt Jones is able to harrass him up the court, then he can't get a step on him with a nice crossover move - look at the replays that play - Matt Jones is right with him... Matt Jones is not a great athlete.
This is what you see with him 90% of the time this season, and some degree of this level of defense on it. And I have to watch more, but I don't think he was quick in high school either.
KIROE made a comment about his initial quickness that I wasn't able to see. Every game I watch of DSJ before he scores has this pattern:
1. Attacks left or right on first step.
2. Defender meets him with good position on initial step.
3. DSJ immediately changes direction (this is the only way he gets shots off)
4. Continues with drive or step back which leads to shot.
5. Shot is highly contested.
That, combined with lack of WS, and I was done.
Stuff like that makes me worry about him translating effectiveness at the next level. Those are the kind of things that worry me.
I currently have Fultz, Ball, Jackson, Tatum, Monk, Fox over Smith Jr.
