Measured in at 6'3.75" in shoes, 6'8" wingspan, and a 35 inch vertical.

Put up 19/6/6 with over 2 steals, so he's somebody who can impact the game in multiple ways. Currently projected 27th to the Suns by DraftExpress.

Chad Ford has this guy going 20th on his latest mock.

I worry that Payton doesn't have the flat out speed to be a starting PG in the NBA. We know he doesn't have the size to take punishment at the rim. Will this guy be able to get in the paint consistently or will he be another one of those move-the-ball-around-the-perimeter-PGs who comes off the bench and gives you 10 minutes?

He's a pretty poor man's Rondo...but he's got great heart and defense. Great at getting to the rim. You can play ten feet off of him when he's around the arc though...no long distance shot threat at all. Change of pace backup PG

Jalen Rose made the point that he's rising in workouts like Dame Lillard did. IMO, this guy is not close to a Lillard type of prospect.
