Gobert will turn 20 the day before the 2013 draft, and if he declares this year, he's a legit top-ten pick. The Frenchman measured 214 centimeters (7' 1/4") barefoot at the 2012 Euro Camp, meaning he'll be closer to 7'2" in shoes. He also measured a 236 cm (7'9") wingspan! He uses his length to finish in traffic and his natural athleticism for shot blocking and put-backs. He needs to see more significant minutes, but he averaged almost 4 blocks per 40 minutes last year as an 18-year old. If he has a great year, he could be a top-five guy next June.
