Heard has been not only one of the most visible players in the country this spring, but also one of the most hotly debated. He was mentioned as one of the top four or five players all year, but scouts scratched their heads as his batting average slid all spring and stood at .284 as the draft approached. He hasn't looked comfortable or natural at the plate and regularly chased pitches out of the strike zone. Behind the plate, Heard is a Gold Glove winner in waiting. He has outstanding catch-and-throw skills. But it will take a team that sees offensive potential to take him near the top.
