    I read somewhere that he's fast enough to play a corner position.
    Read comparison to Ryan Braun.

    Kris Bryant will be gone, so point is mute. If he had the 7th or 8th pick, then it would be different.

    It's a little to early to say where a player may land.
    Definitively speaking of course.

    He's arguably the best college bat in the draft, I'm sure he will get taken

    We all know that the rankings of college hitters never change. Hitters never improve or decline.

    You use the word "arguably" inferring it is questionable and them follow it with "I'm sure" which is definitive. However, the only thing definitive is that we have no idea how things will turn out 8 months from now. Also, with bats like Austin Meadows, Austin Wilson, Clint Frazier, and Justin Williams, it is not that far-fetched to think that Kris Bryant makes it to 11 or at least one of them is available.

    They do change, but not much, unless he suffers an injury like Victor Roache did, or sucks. I don't think he will though.

    I mean you can debate whether or not he or Austin Wilson is the best college bat, thus he being "arguably" the best college bat. High level college bats tend to fall off the board quickly.

    My gut says that Meadows, Wilson, and Bryant will not be available. It's possible one of Frazier or Williams will be available, but we shall see.

    Mickie Mathook lasted to the supplemental round. As did Bryce Brentz.

    Those were far deeper drafts. We all know that this draft and the draft in 2012 is not going to be that good.

    Yeah, those draft well pretty deep. In this draft much like last year, those guys will go in the top 10-15 picks.

    2. Cubs ($9,822,500)
    3. Rockies ($9,490,700)
    4. Twins ($7,700,700)
    5. Indians ($7,693,000)
    6. Marlins ($8,870,700)
    7. Red Sox ($6,341,900)

    Mets have that extra 600K or so for not signing Stankie, hope they make good use of it.

    Aaron Judge is a guy that right now seems to be a guy that may be drafted in the back half of the 1st round maybe later, but if he starts hitting for power he likely will shoot up to the top 15 picks even top 10.

    He has a beastly size at 6'7'' 230 pounds.

    IMO Frazier and the Austin guys will be gone by the 11th pick, so guys like Judge or Abreu will be on the next tier of outfield bats available, though either of those 2 could easily become a top 10 pick as well.

    I know it's early, but just not sure why more guys aren't interested in Justin Williams. Here is a little snippet from an article on some of his stats from his Junior year. "The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Williams is coming off another stellar season at Terrebonne. As a junior, he was one of the area's best hitters with a .519 average, eight home runs, nine doubles, two triples, 25 RBIs and a .637 on-base percentage." He did this on a sub .500 team which means he probably didn't have much protection before or after him. I just think that it's impressive that he is not just a power hitter, but hits for average as well. Here is the full article on him.

    Also here is a recent scouting report.

    http://www.minorleagueball.com/2012/...-terrebonne-hs

    Sorry I keep bringing the guy up, but I just think he is a perfect fit for what we need and has the potential to be a star. Also, he is projected to go right around where we pick.
