New Orleans Pelicans Draft Pick: Nerlens Noel, Center, Kentucky

Nerlens Noel

Center from Kentucky


This is a great landing spot for Noel. He can be a help defender, blocking shots from the weak side, all while defending the four instead of the five. Once he's healthy, this is the scariest defensive front court in the NBA. Robin Lopez and Ryan Anderson can certainly bridge the gap while they wait for the youngster to heal up. "It's gonna be a shot blocking party," said Noel. You said it pal.
