Collymore stands out for his tightly wound 6-foot, 195-pound build and power/speed combination. He started to translate his tools into performance more this spring, hitting a home run against the Astros when the Canadian junior national team was on its tour of spring training bases in Florida in April, and had late helium as the draft approached. He's also the type of player who could impress executives at a predraft workout. A good athlete who is built like a running back and has a quick righthanded bat, he has the tools to hit for average and power but will need to continue to improve his pitch recognition and plate discipline. He is an above-average runner in the 60-yard dash, but his speed doesn't show itself out of the box or at second base. He is raw at second and a team could also try him in center field, though his arm is below-average. Scouts like Collymore's makeup and work ethic. He is committed to Missouri but is considered signable.
