12 366 Minnesota Twins Kyle Carr LHP Minn.
18 546 Minnesota Twins Matt Nohelty OF Minn.
Passed over as a draft-eligible sophomore in 2007, Nohelty has above-average speed and a feel for hitting. He needs to draw more walks to fit at the top of a batting order, and his slap approach doesn't lend itself to much power. He's a solid center fielder with a below-average arm. His signability is in question because he's a top student who earned a computer-science degree in three years and turned down the chance to play summer ball in 2007 so he could intern with Northwest Airlines. If he doesn't receive a pro offer to his liking, he could return to Minnesota and pursue a master's degree.
28 846 Minnesota Twins Nate Hanson 3B Minn.
39 1178 Milwaukee Brewers Eric Decker OF Minn.
Minnesota assistant head coach Rob Fornasiere says outfielder Eric Decker reminds him of another former Big 10 Conference two-sport star, Kirk Gibson. Decker set a school record with 67 receptions (for 909 yards and nine touchdowns) last fall. Very athletic at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, he can go from the left side of the plate to first base in an above-average 4.1 seconds and has plus-plus speed once he gets going. He covers enough ground to play center field, though he mans left field in deference to Matt Nohelty. Decker also has plenty of untapped power potential, and while he's raw, he shows the makings of good plate discipline. His worst tool is his arm, but it's playable. Scouts love Decker's tools but don't think they have any chance of signing him as a draft-eligible sophomore.
