Drafted in the 2nd round (71st overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2004 (signed for $500,000)
Campbell showed the best consistent raw power of any high school player on last year's summer showcase circuit, but he's not expected to be one of the first 100 players drafted. His power potential is unquestioned; his other tools are average or worse. He was hitting .525-6-20 through his first 59 at-bats this spring. The biggest question about Campbell is the position he'd play as a pro. His infield actions are stiff and his arm strength is barely adequate for the left side of the infield. He could eventually settle in at second base and become a power-hitting middle infielder in the image of Jeff Kent. Campbell has committed to Alabama but is said to have little interest in attending college.
