He was taken at #17, but right now, David Thorpe of ESPN thinks Sean Williams is the NBA's third best rookie, behind only Kevin Durant and Al Horford. Thorpe raves about how smart Williams is in a video scouting report on the Nets power forward. Dave McMenamin of NBA.com and Drew Peckham of Sports Illustrated have him at #6. Packham notes the Net's intelligence as well: "Williams reads the Wall Street Journal every day." Williams leads all rookies in blocks, dunks and shooting.
