Shooting guard - Jaylon Tyson, California

California's Jaylon Tyson is projected to be a shooting guard or small forward at the next level, as he has the size for both. For the sake of this particular list, he will fall into the two-guard slot. The Bucks have reportedly worked out the versatile youngster ahead of the draft, and at the time of this writing, he's the second-highest-ranked prospect they've checked out on HoopsHype's tracker.

There's a ton to like about Tyson's potential fit in Milwaukee. First and foremost, he's 6-foot-6 and has shown shades of being able to match up against bigger wings, at least collegiately. For a Bucks team that has been starved of taller wing defenders over the years, adding a young one with boatloads of potential would not be the worst idea.

While the defense is undoubtedly captivating, Tyson's greatest strength may come on the other side of the court. He's an electric scorer, having averaged 19.6 points per game this past season, relying on his ability to self-create. Outside of Bobby Portis, the Bucks have lacked much shot creation off of their bench for years, so addressing it by adding Tyson could be incredibly justifiable.

If the Bucks are on the clock at 33 and Tyson's name has not been called, they should give some real thought in selecting him. His two-way impact could make him an immediate contributor to this bench brigade, giving them a go-to scorer and reliable defender on the wing. Really, he'd be knocking out three birds with one stone by adding defense, scoring and youth, all at 21 years old.
