    The nephew of football Hall of Famer John Elway, Sever is a hard-nosed player who was a standout hockey player when he was younger. Sever's average has jumped nearly 100 points, from .279 as a sophomore to .370 as a junior, as he has blossomed into the top run producer in Pepperdine's lineup. Still, scouts aren't in love with his tools. His 6-foot, 205-pound build evokes Dan Uggla, but he projects for below-average power. He's an aggressive hitter who handles fastballs as well as curveballs and projects as an average hitter. His infield actions are somewhat stiff and his range is suspect, but he makes up for it with his sound instincts and aggressiveness. He has fringe-average speed and arm strength, and his defense also has a chance to be average.
