    C J.R. House ranks as one of the more intriguing players in the draft. A two-sport star, he played his high school football in West Virginia and set a state record with 10 touchdown passes in the championship game as he led Nitro High to a state title. He is keeping his college football options open until his status in the baseball draft becomes clear. He has outstanding bat speed and piled up huge offensive numbers after returning to Florida for the baseball season. He also runs well. Scouts question his defensive skills, particularly his arm accuracy.
