||C.J. McElroy Jr.
|The son of longtime big league reliever Chuck McElroy, outfielder C.J. McElroy draws comparisons to Michael Bourn. His plus-plus speed stands out both on the diamond and on the gridiron. A running back who ran for 1,523 yards and accounted for 28 touchdowns last fall, he signed a football scholarship to play wide receiver at Houston. He also finished seventh at the Texas 5-A track meet in the long jump. At 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds, McElroy won't have much power, but he has a solid righthanded stroke, good pitch-recognition skills and the ability to handle velocity. He's a big-time stolen base threat and covers a lot of ground in center field. His arm is below-average.
