36. Isaiah Mobley, F, USC
Measurables: 6-foot-10, 235 pounds, Unknown wingspan
Mike’s Ranking: Unranked
Evan’s Ranking: 34
Often overshadowed by his brother Evan, Isaiah Mobley is also a very skilled big man in his own right. He’s not been ranked on many draft boards, but Mobley’s physical tools in combination with his feel for the game and scoring potential should have teams interested in him in the second round. Mobley does his best work on the block as a post scorer and as an offensive rebounder.
His skills are really refined down on the block with good footwork, touch, and the ability to finish with either hand. He has also shown glimpses of being able to score off of the dribble, something at 6-foot-10 should interest some teams.
He’s a solid defender who might not be the game-changer as a shot-blocker that his brother, but still has the ability to switch onto the perimeter. Mobley’s great in transition to, his playmaking seems to shine in the open floor. I’m not sure his upside will ever be that of an All-Star, but a solid two-way big who can score and make plays like Mobley can be a role player you want in your rotation for years to come.
