Florida State's top prospect also is a football guy in D'vontrey Richardson, who has been an option quarterback and moved to defense in football. Richardson plays a bit more than Cooper and has raw tools. He's a plus-plus runner who missed time with nagging injuries this spring. Scouts would love to see him concentrate on baseball to see if he can make adjustments at the plate and show some aptitude. He did that as a freshman, hitting .351 in 131 at-bats. Then he didn't play in 2008 to concentrate on football. Richardson could go in the first 10 rounds to a team that has lots of history with him, such as the Nationals, who drafted him out of high school (2006, 35th round).
