The Washington Huskies underrated sophomore guard Jaylen Nowell could be one of the fast rises up draft boards at this NBA Combine. Depending on how pre-draft workouts and interviews go for Nowell, he’ll either fall as a late first or early second round selection in this draft. Falling to the early second presents a big chance for a lot of lottery teams.

Adding size to the backcourt and a capable guard to the rotation would be huge for the Chicago Bulls if that could happen in the second round. A good portion of the players to watch for the Bulls in the NBA Combine next week will be guards that could fall in the second round of the draft.

Nowell showed pretty huge improvement in his second season with Washington in almost every area of his game. The most notable aspects included his three-point shooting percentage that jumped from 35.1 percent to 44 percent this past season and going from 4.0 rebounds per game to 5.3.

The Bulls could use versatile guards that can make an impact on both ends of the floor. But, there is a lot left to be desired that Nowell needs to show at the NBA Combine. He’ll need to show off his physical tools that can be called into question at times. The distributing ability also needs to improve since his frame, at 6-foot-4, is better suited for point guard at the next level.
