Strengths: Tucker is a proven scorer who has evolved his game throughout his four years at Wisconsin. He has shown the ability to lead a team with his tough, gritty play. He has improved over his time in college, developing a consistent jumper to go along with his outstanding post game. He has all of the intangibles that you look for in a player and is a proven winner. Tucker is an outstanding athlete with an NBA physique, which contributes as to why he's such a good defender.
Weaknesses: Tucker is very undersized for a small forward at only 6'5. While his outside shot has improved, it is still inconsistent and flat. His subpar ballhandling skills and average first step may lead him to struggle in the NBA.
Outlook: Tucker is currently a high second round pick who has a shot of landing in the first round with great workouts. His ability to shoot the ball with consistency will prove huge in where he is drafted, and how successful he will eventually become in the league.
