Colvin was the hottest hitter coming down the stretch for one of college baseball's hottest teams. It's redemption for a player who finished 2005 in a 4-for-39 slump. Colvin took a 15-game hitting streak into the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, as his tools start turning into production. Colvin's timing couldn't be better, as scouts are looking for any college hitters who have tools and are performing. Colvin doesn't have a tool that stands out, but as he has gained strength he has been able to repeat his smooth lefthanded swing more readily, and he's added power to be average in that department. He's an above-average runner and an efficient basestealer who plays a solid left field. Colvin's arm is average. While he doesn't stand out, he has shown fewer and fewer weaknesses this spring, and some scouts estimated he would go in the first three rounds.
