Chris Douglas Roberts, Guard/Forward, Memphis University. 6-7, 200 lbs.

 

The Dinosty says:

As tempting as it is to keep things consistent and dip into the Euro pool once more with Nicolas Batum, we hate all things French: French Dressing, French Fries, and 19-year-old raw French prospects. Plus, we kinda have our hands full with a 21 year old raw Italian prospect at the moment.

 So here we go, picking Detroit's own Chris Douglas-Roberts. Seeing as one of Anthony Parker or Carlos Delfino are going to be gone (and Joey Graham left last year, didn't he?), we're hoping our first hyphenate will evolve into the slashing, aggressive SG scorer we so desperately need. After racking up the numbers in college, adding a bit of bulk in the off-season, and impressing staff at his Raptor workout, there's a general consensus amongst the Raptorati that CDR will be the man in purple black and red on draft night.

 Plus, chicks dig him. And the more chicks that show up to Raptors games, the better it is for everyone involved (meaning us).


The Washington Wizards, represented by Bullets Forever, are on the clock.
