9 281 Milwaukee Brewers Malcolm Dowell OF Ga. $100,000
Malcolm Dowell was a football and baseball star at LaGrange (Ga.) High and spurned Division I FCS offers to play football from the likes of Georgia Southern and Middle Tennessee State, who liked him as a defensive back. He's a speedy center fielder in baseball whose profile as a righthanded-hitting (and throwing) center fielder scared off some clubs. His best attributes are his plus speed and athleticism.
