Declared for the draft after just one season at Ohio State...Started two of 33 appearances in 2008-09, averaging 8.8 ppg and 4.7 rpg...He made good on 63.8 percent of his attempts from the floor, establishing a new Ohio State freshman record for accuracy...Mullens has a rare combination of elite size and athleticism, making him an intriguing prospect...Has big hands and long arms, to go with a strong build...Good leaper and finisher around the rim...Runs the floor fluently...Still very raw and will need time to develop...Needs to be more aggressive and consistent...Defensive skills could stand some improvement.
