Hi. Have been on this board for years but took a break and forfgot info.
 Zack is 100% absolutely WRONG about the NBA assessment Julian got. He was told he’d be a late 2nd rd pick but likely a FA.

Wouldn't be the first time and surely won't be the last time that Zach has been straight up fake news

New posters trolling the Board to trash Zach.  I'm sure he's not right 100% of the time -- nobody is.  But I find him to be intelligent, honest, balanced and well-informed.  I think we're very lucky to have him.

I can't speak to his intelligence but he's not honest, balanced or well-informed. A few years back when all the Slice drama was happening and all the rumors were floating around Zach was not only denying that there was fire around that smoke, he was straight up insulting fans on twitter that were asking him about it. So the fact that he was denying those rumors until they turned out to be true shows that either he was wildly misinformed, or purposely misleading the fanbase for the benefit of a friend he had on staff.

I know that seems like ancient history at this point but that was a major story around the program where he was wildly wrong and insulting at the same time. There's also been a couple stories from him about a certain local HS program that was complete journalistic malpractice.

We are lucky that there is somebody covering the program but let's not act like he's in the loop or that he calls it straight down the middle.

I’ve been posting for years under SJU79... I lost my sign in. And I like Zach and his work. I’ve met him multiple times and find him engaging and sincere. This is Not a poke at him .. he just has incorrect information in this instance

I read Zach's report to be the best case scenarios for both Champagnie brothers so mid to late 2nd round as best case for Julian is pretty much in line.  Like someone stated 100 players or more are going to get draft reports and I guarantee more are going to see late 2nd round or better than are going to get drafted.

I think draft grade and where he's told he's likely to get drafted may be two different things.  Zach said his draft grade was mid-low 2nd round, as I said in another thread I'm sure 50+ other players received the same grade, and obviously 50 players won't be taken in the mid-late 2nd round.  You can be told your skill level is at a low-mid 2nd round, but your likely to still be undrafted based on the other players ahead of you.
