    Keppinger reminds scouts of Brian Roberts, a 1999 supplemental first-round pick by the Orioles. He has hit .365 or better in each of his three seasons at Georgia, and his 40-14 walk-strikeout ratio entering NCAA tournament play is a testament to his eye at the plate. He isn't expected to have much difficulty making the transition to wood. While Keppinger's hands are solid, he only has average speed and may have to move from shortstop to second base.
