    View Draft Report
    Catcher Bryan Holaday is having his best season with the bat, hitting .357 with 12 homers through the Mountain West Conference tournament, where he was named MVP. He has an unorthodox righthanded stroke, yet he has barreled balls consistently in 2010. He already had established his strong catch-and-throw skills, and has lived up to his reputation by throwing out 51 percent of basestealers this year. His improved offense and usual fine defense will make him one of the better senior signs in the draft, and it's possible he could go as high as the fifth round.
