Jalen Bridges appears to be one of the sleeper prospects of this year's draft. He is typically going in the late-2nd round of many mock drafts, but he seems poised to be a 3-and-D role player at the next level. He shot a terrific 41.2 percent from three last year at Baylor and showed the ability to drain shots off the catch, dribble, or off movement. He also has very good size and ability on the defensive end of the court with his athleticism and length.

Bridges doesn't have a very high ceiling, given his age and play style. He is already 23 years old and doesn't have much shot creation ability for himself to be anything more than a 3-and-D player, but he has a higher floor and a skillset that any team in the modern NBA could use.

With his negative factors keeping him low on most draft boards, the Milwaukee Bucks would likely be able to draft Bridges in the second round as a potential steal. He looks like he could contribute from day one off the bench and provide some shooting and defense, and that is not something that can be said about a ton of second-round prospects.
