2014 State Draft Report: Arkansas

Most of the talent coming out of the state historically comes from the University of Arkansas, which has three players that could go in the top five rounds, giving the class a presence at the top of the draft. But the lack of depth holds back the class.

The high school crop is substandard. Some area scouts don’t didn’t have a single Arkansas prep player turned in. The top two high school prospects are both committed to Arkansas. Third baseman/catcher has some righthanded power and lefthander Kyle Pate touched 88 with his fastball at the Area Code Games and this spring.

Senior righthander Bradley Wallace will likely be one of the top non-Arkansas college players draft. He has arm strength but a high-effort delivery, though he has cut his walk rate three straight years.
