Drafted in the 1st round (26th overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2004 (signed for $1,325,000)
Robnett, a 5-foot-11, 200-pound lefthanded-hitting center fielder, is the first sign that Fresno State, once one of the nation's best programs, is getting back on solid footing. A redshirt sophomore transfer from Santa Barbara CC, Robnett came on strong this spring and developed into the best everyday player in the Western Athletic Conference. He led the Bulldogs in batting (.373), home runs (13), RBIs (50) and stolen bases (21). He showed better bat speed than in the past, and his stock soared when he held his own against Rice's stellar staff in a three-game series. All his other tools play well. He's an above-average center fielder who gets excellent jumps on fly balls. He has been timed in the 60-yard dash in 6.6 seconds.
