    Mississippi had plenty of physical, veteran hitters who didn't produce as expected. Catcher Miles Hamblin, a former star at Howard (Texas) JC, struggled offensively in the SEC, hitting .259/.378/.430 this season after batting .226 a year ago. He has plus raw power from the left side and good arm strength. Big and physical, he doesn't move well behind the plate and struggled to control the running game. Suffice it to say he didn't live up to expectations after being ranked as the top college player in Texas in the 2009 draft class. If he's drafted this year, it will mark his first time being picked.
