15 486 Texas Rangers Jameis Winston OF Ala.
Winston is part of a long line of Florida State quarterback signees who also have baseball as a possibility. The group incudes the likes of Chris Weinke, Danny Kannell, Joe Mauer and more recently D'Vontrey Richardson. Winston may be the most anticipated football prospect of them all, and his football prowess has clouded his baseball potential. He is one of the better athletes in the draft class, and at times it appears there's nothing beyond his reach. He's a 6.6-second runner in the 60 who switch-hits and has excellent arm strength, having touched 92 mph on the mound. Winston has shown premium bat speed in showcases as well, and at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, it's easy to project him to hit for plus power down the line. He has not had a great spring, turning off scouts with his on-field demeanor and looking less polished than hoped. Winston has handled all the attention he has received --- much of it negative --- for being an Alabama football stud who spurned the Crimson Tide for Florida State. It's difficult for many scouts to imagine him turning down big-time college football, and many hope to check in again in three seasons to see how he has handled playing both sports for the Seminoles.
