    Six-foot-2, 243-pound RHP Jason Jennings started the season as a third- or fourth-round pick but got scouts to look past his big body and focus on his stuff, durability and competitiveness. While Jennings may not fit the conventional mold of a first-round pick, he was consistent every time out this year. In a start at the Big 12 tournament, he allowed a single to the first hitter, then retired the next 27 in order. He pitches especially well in big games and rarely gets rattled. His fastball is a solid 94 mph and he maintains it well throughout games. His hard slider separates him from other elite college pitchers. For Jennings' sake, it would be best if he was drafted by a National League club; he swings the bat with authority as Baylor's cleanup hitter.
