NBA Draft Analysis:
Was an important part of Florida`s two-year run as national champions...Named a Second Team All-SEC performer in 2006 and a First Teamer in `07...Horford has the ideal body type for a power forward at the next level...Tremendous player at the defensive end who can also dominate the glass...Above average shot-blocking ability and does not shy away from physical play...Runs the court well for a big guy...Also has impressive ball-handling skills and passing ability...While Horford is a solid defender, he needs to improve offensively...Horford has an inconsistent jump shot...Tends to get into foul trouble...His footwork and post moves could use some improvement...Free throw shooting is a problem...Needs to be more consistent overall.
