Jeff Francoeur, of

School: Parkview HS. Class: Sr.
Hometown: Lilburn, Ga.
B-T: R-R Ht.: 6-4 Wt.: 205 Birthdate: 1/8/84
College Commitment: Clemson.
Scouting Report: Francoeur is the top two-sport athlete in the draft, a blue-chip defensive back ticketed for Clemson football. Conventional wisdom is that he'll sign to play baseball, though he'll use his leverage to maximum benefit. He's a physical player, with a 6-foot-4, 205-pound frame and plus-plus speed, arm, bat speed and raw power. The one concern scouts have is his batting approach. It doesn't happen very easily for him, as he has a spread-out, no-stride stance and tends to spin off pitches and struggle with breaking stuff. The Braves love to sign home-state players, and the thinking is they'd jump at the chance to grab Francoeur if he's around when they pick 23rd.
