Comparing NCAA Rebounding

by Dan Feldman


It's generally accepted that rebounding translates between college and the NBA better than any other statistic. This chart shows how the top 60 prospects as ranked by Draft Express who played college basketball rebounded in their last college season.*

*2010-11 for everyone but Michael Dunigan, whose stats from 2009-10 were his last. All rebounding numbers came from KenPom.

Filled marks represent top-30 players, and unfilled marks represent players 31-60. The orange lines represent averages for the selected players.

You can customize the chart by projected round and/or position. You can also select specific players. After all, is a first-round power forward ranking above average really relevant when that average is held down by a second-round point guard? Decide and customize for yourself.

One last note before the chart: holy crap, Kenneth Faried!
