Wizards 2017 NBA Draft prospect profile: PF Devin Robinson, Florida

The Washington Wizards hold the 52nd overall pick in the second round of the 2017 NBA Draft. Who will they take? Here is the latest in our series on draft prospects projected to be picked around where the Wizards will select. Check back for more as we continue to get closer to the draft...

Name: Devin Robinson
School: Florida
Position: Power forward
Age: 22
Height: 6-8
Weight: 190
2016/17 stats: 11.1 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 0.6 apg, 0.9 spg, 0.8 bpg, 47.5 FG%, 39.1 3PT% (1.2 3P/3.1 3PA), 72.3 FT%
Projections: DraftExpress 49th, NBADraft.net N/A

5 things to know:

*Robinson had a great NBA Combine. He measured in at a full 6-foot-7 and 6-foot-8 1/2 in shoes with a 7-1 winspan. He will, however, likely need to gain some muscle. He's 190 pounds, which is pretty light for 6-foot-8.

*He has a 41.5-inch vertical leap and 35.5-inch no step vertical, which are both in the 98th percentile in the combine's history, according to Draft Express. Only four players 6-foot-7 or taller have jumped like that at the combine, Vince Carter among them. Don't be surprised if we see Robinson in the dunk contest some day. 

*He's not a prolific scorer, as he averaged 8.9 points in three seasons at Florida and a career-high 11.1 points as a junior this past year. When he did score, he was efficient. He shot 47.5 percent from the field as a junior and improved that percentage in each of his three college seasons.

*Robinson also made leaps in his three-point percentage each year, peaking at 39.1 percent as a junior. That's not extraordinary, but definitely good for a power forward. Over his last 17 games with the Gators, he shot 45.3 percent from three on 3.8 attempts per game. If Robinson can hit threes at the NBA level, that will change his outlook considerably.

*A native of Chesterfield, Va., Robinson went to high school about an hour east of Richmond. 

Fit with Wizards: The Wizards do have some depth at the power forward position with Markieff Morris and Jason Smith. But Robinson would immediately be their most athletic big man. That might be intriguing for them, as Robinson seems like a good fit for their up-tempo style as a guy who can run the floor and finish above the rim.

The 2018 NBA Doomsday Mock Draft: A comical look at every team's worst-case scenario

The 2018 NBA Doomsday Mock Draft: A comical look at every team's worst-case scenario

The 2018 NBA Draft takes place on Thursday, June 21 and once again provides a glimmer of hope for even the most downtrodden franchises.

The NBA Draft is where teams can prepare for the future; where teams can rebuild and reload.

But the NBA Draft is often a crapshoot. Teams waffle on taking the best fit versus the best available player. Teams often panic and rest on laurels of draft years past. Fans like to build draft stereotypes for individual franchises, and while a lot of that is stupid Internet conjecture, it's fun to talk about and is often some actual truth to it.

So what follows is a look at the Doomsday Mock Draft. What your favorite team is likely to do if all else fails, which it often does.

1. Phoenix Suns: A franchise center who spends his first contract working with the Suns' medical staff more than his teammates.

2. Sacramento Kings: Someone who won't be a member of the Kings by the time 2022 rolls around.

3. Atlanta Hawks: Someone that will make Dennis Schroder unhappy.

4. Memphis Grizzlies: A Mike Conley Jr. repair kit.

5. Dallas Mavericks: Not the heir apparent to Dirk Nowitzki.

6. Orlando Magic: A reach that won't pan out.

7. Chicago Bulls: Someone from Iowa State, probably.

8. Cleveland Cavaliers: ANYONE YOU WANT LEBRON JUST PLEASE DON'T LEAVE US AGAIN!!

9. New York Knicks: /inserts .GIF of Spike Lee looking disappointed/

10. Philadelphia 76ers: Another big man because HINKIE 4 LYFE.

11. Charlotte Hornets: A North Carolina Tar Heel.

12. Los Angeles Clippers: A playmate for the head coach's son.

13. Los Angeles Clippers: DeAndre Jordan 2.0.

14. Denver Nuggets: Yet another athletic guard.

15. Washington Wizards: Nope. Not touching this one.

16. Phoenix Suns: Someone to pass Devon Booker the ball.

17. Milwaukee Bucks: Wingspan. Nothing but wingspan.

18. San Antonio Spurs: One of the Space Jam villains who conveniently falls to the Spurs (See: Leonard, Kawhi. Anderson, Kyle. Murray, Dejounte)

19. Atlanta Hawks: Someone to replace Dennis Schroder.

20. Minnesota Timberwolves: Someone who Tom Thibideau can play 60 minutes of a 48-minute game.

21. Utah Jazz: A real glue guy. A gym rat. A high-motor guy. Intangibles. Grit. Moxie. 

22. Chicago Bulls: A two-way player who will ultimately get punched in the face by Bobby Portis.

23. Indiana Pacers: DRAFT ANOTHER UCLA PLAYER. WE DARE YOU.

24. Portland Trail Blazers: DRAFT ANOTHER MID-MAJOR GUARD. WE DARE YOU.

25. Los Angeles Lakers: The subject of Lonzo Ball's next diss track.

26. Philadelphia 76ers: A pallet of knockoff burner phones.

27. Boston Celtics: A draft night trade for more draft picks they probably won't use.

28. Golden State Warriors: An unfairly good player.

29. Brooklyn Nets: An unfairly bad player.

30. Atlanta Hawks: We ran out of Dennis Schroder jokes.
