Robert Woodard II is quite the athletic specimen that has the makings of a 3-and-D forward from this NBA Draft class, but is that enough to entice the Milwaukee Bucks?

Just like he’s equally capable of rising up to throw down a powerful slam dunk, Robert Woodard II is making the leap into the NBA by entering the 2020 NBA Draft.

The son of the all-time scoring leader in Mississippi State University, the youngest Woodard followed his father’s footsteps by attending his hometown school and was a four-star recruit while in high school.

The prospect of playing for the school where his father starred was a big point of pride for Woodard as he told Logan Lowery of the Daily Journal the following:

"“It means a lot to me,” Woodard said. “Being able to come to the same school that he went to means a lot. There’s a lot of pride in that.”"

It was over Woodard’s sophomore season this year where, thanks to a more featured role under head coach Ben Howland, Woodard was able to show off his versatile and budding offensive game to increasingly become a worthy draft prospect.

In his 31 appearances with the Bulldogs this season, Woodard averaged 11 points on .495/.429/.641 shooting splits, 6.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.1 steals and a block across 33.1 minutes per game.

So without further ado, let’s dive into the game of Robert Woodard II by exploring his strengths and weaknesses, how draft experts currently rate him and evaluate his potential fit with the Milwaukee Bucks.
