1Luke HochevarNO SCHOOLRHPR/R6'5"2051983-09-15NS350K
Comments: Arguably the top arm in last year's draft class, he didn't come to terms with the Dodgers and re-enters. He's been pitching indy ball and showing good velocity with some rust. When he's on, he's in the mid-90s with a plus breaking ball as well.
2Gregory ReynoldsStanford URHPR/R6'7"2201985-07-034YR350K
Comments: No one moved up the charts late in the season more than the him. He beat fellow draft classers Brandon Morrow and Tim Lincecum to work his way into top 10 cconsideration. His fastball sits in the low 90s and couples it with his breaking ball.
3Evan LongoriaCal St Long Beach3BR/R6'2"2131985-10-074YR350K
Comments: The best college bat in the draft, Longoria can play all over the infield. He doesn't have one tool that jumps out for scouts, but can hit for average and power.
4Brad LincolnU HoustonRHPL/R6'0"2001985-05-254YR350K
Comments: Has been a two-way player while at Houston. He can touch the mid-90s with his fastball and has a hard curve. Coming off a strong Cape season, he followed that up with an outstanding junior year on the mound.
5Brandon MorrowUC BerkeleyRHPR/R6'3"1901984-07-264YR350K
Comments: Fastball-splitter duo will be tempting for any team looking for an advanced college arm. With those two pitches, he could move to the bullpen, where he has previous experience. His weight and his diabetic condition make a relief role more possible.
6Andrew MillerUNC Chapel HillLHPL/L6'6"1951985-05-214YR350K
Comments: Front-runner to be the No. 1 overall pick entering the season because of his size and his stuff, but never ran away and hid despite a statistically solid season. Drafted by the Rays in the third round of the 2003 draft, he didn't sign. When his slider is on, it's good enough to get big league hitters out now.
7Clayton KershawHighland Park HSLHPL/L6'3"2201988-03-19HS350K
Comments: Considered to be the top high school arm in the draft, Kershaw's fastball sits in the mid-90s to go along with a big curve and workable changeup. An oblique injury hasn't scared teams off.
8Robert StubbsU Texas AustinCFR/R6'4"2001984-10-044YR350K
Comments: A toolsy college outfielder, scouts think Stubbs is a gold-glove caliber CF right now. He's got a power and speed combination that is tempered by his strikeout rate.
9William RowellBishop Eustace Prep Schoo3BL/R6'5"2151988-09-10HS350K
Comments: With power potential from the left side, he's moved to the top of the high school bat list. A shortstop in high school, he's destined for third as a pro.
10Timothy LincecumU WashingtonRHPL/R5'11"1701984-06-154YR350K
Comments: An undersized right-hander, turned down going pro as a draft-eligible sophomore and it's paid off. He's skyrocketed to the top of the first round thanks to a dominating junior season. The PAC-10 career leader in strikeouts, he has an unorthodox delivery, leading some to worry about durability. He's got a plus fastball and plus, plus curve, leading some to compare him to Roy Oswalt. If put in the pen, he could help a big league club out this season.
11Maxwell ScherzerU Missouri ColumbiaRHPR/R6'2"2101984-07-274YR350K
Comments: When the season began, was being mentioned among the top picks in the country. Biceps tendinits that forced him to miss several starts has made some scouts pause. With a fastball that can reach the upper-90s, a plus slider and a bulldog mentality, some see him as a short reliever in the future.
12Kasey KikerRussell County HSLHPL/L5'11"1851987-11-19HS350K
Comments: Only questions about makeup have kept him from being at the top of high school pitching depth charts. Fastball sits in mid-90s and he throws a changeup and curve as well.
13Tyler ColvinClemson ULFL/L6'3"1901985-09-054YR350K
Comments: He has a good hitting approach, though sometimes he's too aggressive. He hasn't shown much power, but there's room for growth there. He has enough speed to possibly stay in center.
14Travis SniderJackson HSRFL/L5'11"2301988-02-02HS350K
Comments: He has the chance to be a prototypical corner OF or 1B in terms of power, though there are questions about his defense. He's as complete a high school hitter as there is in this draft.
15Christopher MarreroMonsignor Edward Pace HSOFR/R6'3"2101988-07-02HS350K
16Jeremy JeffressHalifax County Sr HSRHPR/R6'0"1751987-09-21HS350K
Comments: He's been clocked in the triple-digits and sits in the upper-90s. He's been compared to Dwight Gooden, though his breaking pitch doesn't measure up.
17Matthew AntonelliWake Forest U3BR/R6'1"1951985-04-084YR350K
Comments: Always a good hitter with outstanding patience and decent speed, he's added a little more power in his junior year. He's athletic enough to play a number of positions as a pro.
18Kyle DrabekThe Woodlands HSRHPR/R6'1"1901987-12-08HS350K
Comments: Doug's son may have the best arm in the draft. A good athlete who would be a shortstop prospect as well, he throws a mid-90s fastball and two outstanding breaking pitches.
19Brett SinkbeilMissouri St URHPR/R6'3"1951984-12-264YR350K
Comments: Came out of a start in late April with an oblique injury and missed a lot of time. Before the injury, he was outpitching the other college ace in Missouri, Max Scherzer. When healthy, his fastball can hit 94 mph and he throws a plus slider.
20Christopher ParmeleeChino Hills HSRFL/L6'1"2051988-02-24HS350K
Comments: A smooth left-handed swing provides line drives now and presents the kind of power potential scouts like. His arm may play in right field and he's a good baserunner, but the bat is what will get him drafted.
21Ian KennedyU Southern CaliforniaRHPR/R6'0"1951984-12-194YR350K
Comments: Has been on radars for a long time, being drafted in the 14th round back in 2003. He hasn't been bad in 2006, but it's been a far cry from his first two college seasons. He's lost some velocity on the fastball, though he still knows how to pitch with an aggressive style and hard curve.
22Colton WillemsJohn Carroll HSRHPR/R6'4"1751988-07-30HS350K
Comments: He's got three above-average pitches -- fastball, curve, slider -- and a projectable body. Curve hasn't been as sharp, though he took his game up a notch over the course of the season.
23Maxwell SappBishop Moore SchoolCL/R6'2"2201988-02-21HS350K
Comments: Scouts like his bat more than his glove. He has left-handed power and has an idea at the plate. Improved conditioning has helped his defense, but many still think he won't stay behind the plate.
24John JohnsonA Crawford Mosley HSOFL/R6'4"1951988-08-18HS350K
25Hyun Choi CongerHuntington Beach HSCS/R6'0"2051988-01-29HS350K
Comments: Switch-hitting catchers are rare, especially ones with power, a big reason why he's now considered the top backstop in the draft. Improved defense has people believing he can stay behind the plate.
26Avery MorrisMotlow St CCRHPL/R6'3"1751987-03-28JR 
Comments: The Rays' third-round pick from last year, he played two ways in JC and actually broke a bone in his wrist sliding headfirst. His best offering is a plus, plus curve, though he also has a fastball that can hit the mid-90s.
27Jason PlaceWren HSCFR/R6'3"2051988-05-08HS350K
Comments: He has power, speed and arm strength that make him an enticing corner outfield candidate. He's got plus makeup and plays the game hard, a kid who only played baseball in high school.
28Daniel BardUNC Chapel HillRHPR/R6'4"2001985-06-254YR350K
Comments: Has one of the best arms in the 2006 draft class, but consistency has eluded him somewhat. Has a plus fastball that can touch 97 mph and a breaking ball that isn't as effective. Command has been an issue at times, and just when it looked like he was turning a corner and moving up the charts, he struggled again leaving his status in question.
29Kyle McCullochU Texas AustinRHPR/R6'3"1851985-03-204YR350K
Comments: Became Texas' Friday starter last year and helped it win the national championship by going 12-4. He started slowly in 2006, but finished strong. He has been able to get the fastball up to the low-to-mid 90s to go along with a plus breaking ball, but it's his knowledge of pitching that really makes him intriguing.
30Adam OttavinoNortheastern URHPR/R6'5"2151985-11-224YR350K
Comments: Aggressive on the mound, he often has the stuff to match with a plus fastball, a slider that is an out pitch at times and a less consistent curve.
