16 492 New York Mets Brad Marquez OF Texas $325,000
A shortstop from Odessa (Texas) HS, Marquez has electrifying speed, which helps him on both sides of the ball. At the plate, he shows a clean, line-drive stroke. His speed makes up for below-average power and he profiles as a leadoff hitter that might be best defensively at second base or center field. One of the best athletes available in the draft, Marquez rushed for 2,210 yards and 29 touchdowns as a high school senior, and he also was a Texas state finalist in the long jump. He has a football scholarship to play wide receiver at Texas Tech.
