Comments: Not your typical college senior, Harris could be among the first of that class to go if the Navy allows him to put off his active duty like the Army's Nick Hill did a year ago. The Braves liked what they saw in Harris a year ago despite knowing it would be nearly impossible to sign him. He's still throwing as well and the going should be a little bit easier, so predicting an earlier selection than last year's 24th-round pick is a no-brainer.

13Wallace, BrettArizona St U3BL/R6'02"2351986-08-26JR400K
Comments: Drawing rave reviews for his work in the box, he's one of the best hitters in college and perhaps in the entire Draft class. His unbelievable plate discipline will undoubtedly be attractive to some teams, though it's unlikely he'll play anything but first as a pro. He could be the kind of Major Leaguer who hits .300 with 25 homers and a high OBP annually.

59Peterson, ShaneCal St Long BeachOFL/L6'00"1951988-02-11JR400K
Comments: A fairly good athlete, Peterson has shown the ability to hit for average in college, but it's unclear whether his approach will work at the pro level. There have been glimpses of power in BP, but not in games, lending some to wonder if he's got enough pop to play first or a corner outfield spot as a pro. Defensively, he's fine at either position with enough arm for right. How much power people think he'll develop later on could determine how quickly he gets taken.

39Lynn, MichaelU MississippiRHPR/R6'05"2501987-05-12JR400K
Comments: Lacking great pure stuff, Lynn is a level behind the elite college arms in this Draft class. But he makes the most out of his average offerings with excellent command, a knowledge of how to pitch and a real competitive streak on the mound. He's done a good job of maintaining his weight this year and will have to continue to do so as a pro. He won't wow you, but he's the type who could be a solid innings-eater who presumably won't take long to be big-league ready.

125Gorgen, ScottUC IrvineRHPR/R5'10"1901987-01-27JR400K
Comments: Gorgen's combination of stuff, command and makeup in a different package would be flying up Draft charts everywhere. But as a stocky "undersized righty," he'll have to fight an uphill battle to get the recognition he probably deserves. There are always teams who look outside that certain box, and his ability to throw three pitches -- fastball, curve, changeup -- for strikes to go along with a terrific work ethic should entice one of them to take him.
