 Richard Roby  
 Position: Shooting Guard
 School: Colorado
 Conference: Big 12
 Height, Weight: 6'6, 195
 
 
ANALYSIS: Roby is Kenyon Martin's half-brother, and he has demonstrated since he stepped on the court at Colorado that he is a gifted offensive player. He led Colorado in scoring as a freshman, when he averaged 16 points per game. Roby has great shooting range and he performed even better as a sophomore scoring 17 points per game with 5.5 rebounds. Roby declared for the draft but did not hire an agent. The best aspect of Roby's game is his jumper, and he has excellent shooting mechanics. He can knock down shots off the dribble, catch and shoot or shoot a turnaround. Roby willingly accepts the ball in clutch situations, and as he matures so should his shot selection. He shot 43 percent his two college seasons and 37 percent on three-pointers. Roby has extremely long arms and averaged 2.1 steals per game last season. Although, he is a very capable defender, he seems to be a lot more interested in playing offense and sometimes seems to lose focus on defense. A game last season against Texas Tech reflects Roby's immense athleticism. In that game, he struggled shooting 3-of-11 from the floor on the way to 17 points, but he pulled down 15 rebounds and blocked three shots. Although, he has all the tools to be a very good defender with his long arms and quickness, Roby has to become better defensively. One way he can do that is to become stronger physically. His free-throw shooting must also improve from the 73 percent he shot in college. Individual workouts will determine if Roby can sneak into the first round, but many scouts believe he is a great NBA prospect for the future, especially if he returns to Colorado for another year of experience.
