South Carolina v Duke
GREENVILLE, SC - MARCH 19: Amile Jefferson #21 of the Duke Blue Devils reacts in the second half against the South Carolina Gamecocks during the second round of the 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at Bon Secours Wellness Arena on March 19, 2017 in Greenville, South Carolina.

Duke’s Amile Jefferson is unlikely to be drafted in the first round and possibly not the second.

He’s made an impression though - he can rebound and defend and he is a high character guy. So he’ll get looks.

Charlotte, for instance, had him in for a workout.

The Hornets pick 11th and 41st and it’s conceivable that they could take him in the second round if he makes a strong impression.
