2014 State Draft Report: West Virginia

While the class lacks any surefire candidates to go in the top five rounds, the University of West Virginia has considerable depth of draft prospects.

The top three arms on the team (Harrison Musgrave, John Means and Sean Carley) could go in the top 10 rounds. The Mountaineers could have at least three other players draft, which would tie WVU’s record for most players draft in a single season.

Outfielder Bobby Boyd has the best tool of the unranked Mountaineers with his plus-plus speed and led the team in batting average. Righthander Corey Walter can run his fastball up to 94, but has produced tepid results with as many walks as strikeouts. Lefthanded-hitting first baseman Ryan McBroom has at least average power and should be a valued senior sign.

The talent in the state comes almost exclusively from the college ranks as some scouts didn't see a high school game in West Virginia this season.
