Is Mason Plumlee the most athletic rookie big?

USA TODAY Sports

On the morning after the draft, Chad Ford gave the Nets a grade of "B" noting, they "landed Mason Plumlee, the most athletic big in the draft not named [Nerlens] Noel. Plumlee slid in the draft because of his age. Had he been 19 or 20 years old, he would've been a lottery pick." (It should also be noted that the Nets made the pick knowing they already had Kevin Garnett in the bag.)

Now, Ball is Life suggests that Plumlee may have been the "most athletic big man in the draft," period, and presents a video of his highlights from Duke, high school and some pick-up games as well to prove it.  Plumlee may not play a lot of minutes in Brooklyn, with Brook Lopez, Kevin Garnett and Andray Blatche ahead of him in the rotation, but there's no doubting that athleticism.  Oh yeah, as the video shows, he can pass as well.
