Derrick Favors is a prospect with a high upside to his game. He has the ability to finish on the inside with either hand along with being a great rebounder on both ends of the floor. He runs the floor very well for a player his size and is capable of stepping outside and knocking down the jumper if you double team him. He is very active on the inside on both ends of the floor being able to alter or block any shot put up by his opponents on the inside. He has a motor that never stops and has started to add even more range on his jumper stepping out and knocking down the 3 more consistently.
