.OF Carl Crawford is one of the two or three best athletes in the draft. He has a rare package of speed and strength and has committed to Nebraska as an option quarterback. In tryouts for scouts, he hit a number of mammoth home runs. The downside to Crawford is that his skills are raw--and draft history is full of multi-tooled athletes with limited baseball instincts who don't pan out. He was often overmatched at the plate by ordinary high school pitching. He'll be a first-round pick, but maybe the riskiest one.
