Derrick Caracter is not super explosive (plays below the rim) but he gets off the floor very quickly, which really helps make up for that.

Derrick Caracter moves the way very few big men can. Extremely fluid and nimble with superb body control. Body looks great. Excellent hands.

Derrick Caracter is looking absolutely fantastic. Every European GM in the building has a huge hard on for him right now.

* For the NBA and International leagues, top 25s reflect the actual top 25 list. Due to the number of college players, we've limited top 25s in NCAA to only draft prospects which better reflects the level of competition and what we feel provides highlights of a more interesting subset. Top 25s of college stats prior to 2005 will be extremely inaccurate due to the minimal number of college profiles from 2004 and before in our database
