Others to watch:

RHP David Pauley is Colorado's most draftable player but is more as a draft-and-follow candidate. He has a good body (6-foot-2, 170 pounds) and a clean delivery. His velocity is below-average at 87-90 mph . . . RHP Judson Songster is a converted outfielder just learning to pitch. He has little feel for a second pitch, but his fastball ranges from 88-92 mph and he throws it for strikes all day long . . . SS/RHP Corey Harrington is eligible as a sophomore because he redshirted a year with arm problems. He can run (6.42 seconds in the 60-yard dash), and his bat is just starting to emerge . . . Six-foot-3, 190-pound SS Brett Berglund is a sleeper candidate. He's not well known to Colorado scouts and has gained more acclaim as one of the state's best tennis players . . . OF Donny Sevieri had high expectations coming into college after being drafted in the 10th round out of high school. He won't go that high again because he didn't make much progress in college and he had a hot-and-cold year with the bat, his best tool . . . RHP/SS Andy Lytle is a good two-way high school player. There's not much pro interest in a short righthander with an 88 mph fastball.
