Granderson contended for the NCAA Division I batting title all season long, leading Illinois-Chicago to a school record for victories and its first-ever conference title. He doesn't have a major weakness or strength. His bat is his best tool, but it projects as more solid than spectacular, and he's a good all-around athlete with an above-average arm and average speed. Some scouts don't like his power potential, while others do. He has closed holes in his swing and quickened his bat this spring. He'll likely be selected in the third or fourth round.
