Summary: Notes: Second team All-American. Gonzaga's fourth all-time leading scorer. Ranked seventh in the nation in assists this year. Averaged 14.7 ppg, 6.9 apg while shooting 38 percent from behind the three point arc. His senior season was a bit of a disappointment compared to what he did his junior year.

Positives: A big time shooter with deep, NBA range on his jumper. Is a smart passer and is very smart managing a game. Can swing between the one and the two when you need him too.

Negatives: His ball handling still needs work. He struggles when pressed by smaller guards. His athleticism isn't up to snuff for the NBA. He's going to struggle defensively due to a lack of lateral quickness.

Insider projection: He failed his physical in Chicago meaning that he didn't get to play in the pre-draft camp. That's unfortunate. Stepp was one of the guys who could've helped his stock there. He's a solid second round pick.
