Drafted in the 2nd round (61st overall) by the San Francisco Giants in 2000 (signed for $655,000)
The son of former big leaguer Joe Niekro tore up the Cape Cod League last summer, leading the nation's premier summer college league in homers (13) and RBIs (44), while finishing second in batting average (.360). That could keep the 6-foot-3, 205-pound Niekro in the first 100 picks despite a poor spring. Scouts have seen a radically different, less effective swing with aluminum and are concerned he doesn't run well. While he has the hands and arm for third, his lack of speed may leave him bunted to death at third, pushing him to first base. The Giants and Red Sox have shown the most interest, but it's no longer first-round interest.
