Below, is a video interview with Cornell's Jeff Foote following his workout today with the Portland Trailblazers, along with the opinions of Chad Buchanan, Portland's director of college scouting. Above, Foote does battle during his workout. Also pictured, Samardo Samuels (Louisville), Dominic Waters (Portland State), Matt Bouldin (Gonzaga), Luke Harangody (Notre Dame) and Larry Sanders (Virginia Commonwealth).
Buchanan's take: "Cornell big man. Has kind of gotten better every year he's been there. His team had a terrific season this year. He's a big body, keeps his game very simple, which is something we like from those centers. Joel is kind of the same way; they keep the game real simple. Low turnover guy, low mistake guy. Not very athletic, but he's got good lateral agility for a guy his size. I think he'll get some looks in the second round simply because big men .. it's hard to find big men."
