    Brigham Young righthander Taylor Cole was rated the No. 79 in the country heading into the 2007 draft, as a senior at Bishop Gorman High in Las Vegas. He slipped to the 26th round and headed to JC of Southern Nevada, where he fell even further to the 31st round in 2008. Cole then spent 2009 and 2010 on a Mormon mission in Toronto. He returned and pitched well this year, sitting in the 90-92 mph range early and touching 94. He mixed in a slider and changeup. He tired down the stretch, with his fastball dipping down to the mid-80s at times, which isn't shocking from a player who took two years off. While Cole is athletic, he doesn't have a workhorse frame at 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds. He could go off the board as high as the fifth round to a team that saw him good this year and remembers him touching 96 mph out of high school.
