Don’t see any flaws really in his game.
His weaknesses are his weakness (which has derailed a lot of players who looked like potential defensive monsters in college - obviously he's at a much better starting point than like Bol Bol so it won't make him unplayable, but there's a decent chance it'll keep him from being some perennial all-defense type of guy), his shooting, which even for a big's standards isn't that great (I'd say Marvin Bagley had a better shooting profile coming out of college), and his post game.
The latter seems like an antiquated concern, but there's a Porzingis/Clint Capela threshold where teams will just go small and then you're not really a plus offensive player and aren't going to have some phenomenal defensive impact either. It's a truism at this point that bigs take a longer time to develop than guards and there are so many factors working against them (having to quarterback the defense against much more potent spread offenses, not having a good three-pointer to fall back on while developing in other areas, how differently bigs are officiated compared to perimeter players, having to go head to head against opposing star bigs rather than hidden on the easiest matchup on the perimeter players) that I'd have a hard time justifying Mobley #1. If he were a bit younger (he's just a couple months younger than Wiseman, and a sophomore Wiseman would be killing people in the NCAA as well) or actually did appear to be a unicorn type of shooter rather than just someone you can't leave completely wide open, maybe.
