Eddie Gill
Position: Point Guard
College: Weber St.
Conference: Big Sky
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 195
Age: 21
Birthdate: 08/16/78
High School: Overland, Aurora, Calif.

Gill put together some impressive numbers as a senior. At 6-feet, he averaged an eye-popping 6.4 rebounds, but boardwork isn't the reason an NBA team would take a chance on drafting him. Gill averaged 16.3 points and shot well from 3-point range (.366) and the free-throw line (.861) this season. Even more impressive, at least as far as playing the point is concerned: He handed out 194 assists and made 90 steals. Those are solid numbers from the point-guard spot. But Gill will have to learn to play more under control if he wants a pro career.
