2012 NBA Draft Results: Hawks Select Mike Scott With No. 43 Pick

With the No. 13 pick in the second round, the Hawks used their second pick of the draft to take Virginia power forward Mike Scott.

The 6-foot-8, 237-pound Scott averaged 18 points and 8.3 rebounds per game last season. He's not spectacular at any one trait, but is a solid all-around player with a lot of toughness and effort. He has a good hook shot with his right hand, but also can spot up in the mid-range game.

But because of that size, it could be hard to get shots off against NBA power forwards. He won't be able to overwhelm opponents with his tools. Not many four-year college players get drafted, but Scott has enough tools to be a solid role player.
