    Junior outfielder Nick Buss failed to capitalize on his strong summer in Alaska, where he ranked as the No. 1 prospect in 2007. A wonderful all-around athlete, Buss has 6.7-second speed in the 60 to go with a solid-average arm. He can hold down any outfield spot defensively but has reinforced scouts' doubts about his bat. Buss' long and somewhat stiff swing has garnered spotty results in 2008, but a late hot spurt may have bolstered his draft stock.
