14Hicks, AaronWoodrow Wilson HS (CA)OFS/R6'02"1701989-10-02HS400K
Comments: Hicks is one of the more athletic outfielders in the high school ranks and perhaps in the Draft class. How high he gets drafted depends on how highly people project what he can become. He's got a ton of tools, but will he learn how to use them? Someone is sure to take that chance.

Comments: Tonkin's size and arm strength have always been intriguing, but his early-season showing at the Urban Youth Academy may have put him more firmly on the map. He's an intriguing arm who'll be watched carefully. If he can continue to evolve into a more complete pitcher, he'll soar up the charts.

60Ladendorf, TylerHoward ColSSR/R5'11"1901988-03-07J2400K
Comments: Ladendorf was drafted by the Giants in the 34th round last year (the second year in a row he'd been drafted in that round), but he opted to return to Howard for another season. There's little question his Draft stock has risen since then as he's shown the ability to run, hit for power and field his position pretty well for a player his size. He may not be a shortstop long-term, but he's more than athletic enough to handle a switch. Wherever he plays defensively, his size and athleticism should see him get drafted for a third time much earlier than the previous two.

31Hunt, StevenTulane URHPR/R6'03"2001986-08-16JR400K
Comments: With a strong junior season, Hunt has moved himself into serious first-round contention. While the right-hander doesn't always command his pitches well -- he's walked a few too many this year -- he's got terrific stuff, most notably his fastball and curve, both of which are above average. He hasn't needed a changeup much, but he has the feel for one. There might be one or two right-handers who rank ahead of Hunt heading into the Draft, but he's not too far behind them in the pecking order.

336De La Osa, DominicVanderbilt U2BR/R5'11"2051986-01-13SR400K
Comments: The senior was taken in the 10th round of the 2007 Draft by the Tigers, but chose to return to Vanderbilt for his senior season. He's very strong and has power to all fields with a fairly short swing. As an outfielder, he's limited to a corner. That puts more pressure on him to show he can hit. How he swings the bat will greatly determine his Draft status.
