State Report: Ohio

With righthanders Stetson Allie and Alex Wimmers, Ohio should have its first pair of first-round picks since Chad Billingsley and Mitch Maier in 2003. In between, the state hasn't had anyone drafted before the sandwich round (Emmanuel Burriss in 2006, Cory Luebke in 2007). The draft overall is down in terms of position players, but the Buckeye State can offer a talented high school catcher in Allie's batterymate Alex Lavisky, and one of college baseball's best athletes in Ohio outfielder Gauntlett Eldemire.
