Tacko-Fall

If you look at most mock draft boards, Tacko Fall isn't projected to make the first round. Not surprising with the pace and space, small ball direction the NBA is going.

To put things into perspective, Rudy Gobert is 7 ft 1 in and has a 7 ft 9 in wingspan. You can't understand how big this young man is until you see him live. Players of his size had some success in the NBA, but you have to be freakishly mobile for your size to make it in the league.

With these measurements, Tacko is the prime candidate for "Tacko Fall names all XY players drafted before him in the 2019 Draft" a few years from now. If your team takes a swing in the second round, Tacko would makes sense.
