View Draft ReportFirst baseman Brent Weaver was the NAIA player of the year after hitting .419 with 37 homers, the second-most in NAIA history. It was a remarkable end to a six-year college career. The Brewers drafted as a pitcher in the 38th round in 2003 out of Midwest City (Okla.) HS, where he was a teammate of Matt Kemp. He pitched at Oklahoma State in 2004, but tore his labrum and underwent two shoulder surgeries. After redshirting in 2005, he blew out his elbow that fall and needed Tommy John surgery. Weaver missed all of 2006 and spent 2007 at Rose State (Okla.) JC before transferring to Oklahoma City, where the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder hit 61 homers in two years. He's 24 and ancient for a college player, but his righthanded power should buy him the opportunity to play pro ball.
