Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
8 260 Colorado Rockies Corey Dickerson OF Miss. $125,000
He's the best juco prospect from the state since Desmond Jennings, a 10th-round pick of the Rays in 2006. Dickerson has the hitting ability to step right into the Bulldogs' lineup, having hit .474 with 19 home runs in 137 at-bats at Meridian. He has a pro body and present strength, he plays hard and his best tool is his bat, an attractive profile. He's a fringe-average runner and profiles as a left fielder. He had right labrum surgery in 2007, and his arm has never bounced back, with one evaluator giving him a well-below-average grade.
