    Few players in the 2013 draft can match Engel's physical ability. A star quarterback at Loveland (Ohio) High, he drew football interest from programs such as Wisconsin. He's a 6-foot-1, 208-pounder who can cover 60 yards in 6.4 seconds, play a major league-caliber center field and display raw power potential. His arm is close to average, which is better than many center fielders. In spite of his first-round tools, his lack of performance at the plate will drop him at least a couple of rounds. While he has some bat speed and strength, he holds his hands too low at the plate and his righthanded swing doesn't produce enough contact. He hit .229/.328/.299 with wood bats in the Cape Cod League last summer, and was batting .239/.362/.294 with a week remaining in the 2013 regular season. His 38 steals ranked fifth in NCAA Division I, though he also had been caught 10 times.
