First baseman Andy Wilkins offers lefthanded power and has hit 42 homers in three seasons at Arkansas. A lot of scouts question how well the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder's pop will play with wood bats, however. He hit just .232 with two homers in 24 games while using wood with Team USA last summer, and was batting just .274 with metal entering NCAA regional play. He has a deep load in his swing that makes it hard for him to turn on quality pitching. He's a well-below-average runner, but he has improved defensively and does a decent job at first base. A team that really believes in his power could go get him in the third round, but the consensus would place him somewhere between the seventh and 10th.
