Chad Qualls, rhp
Nevada

A senior who went undrafted in 1999, Qualls was the talk of the West in February when he came out throwing 91-94 mph with an above-average slider. He added 15 pounds from last year, resulting in an extra 4-5 mph in velocity, and everything clicked for him. He went through a customary dead arm period in March, when his fastball slipped to 85 mph, but came back strong in April. Qualls should be the first senior drafted--possibly in the compensation or second round.
