Undrafted out of high school, Federowicz arrived on the North Carolina campus as a freshman and quickly gained a reputation for being a clutch-hitting catcher with a great arm who knows how to win. He has been a fixture behind the plate and in the middle of the Tar Heel lineup during the three most successful seasons in the school's history. Federowicz also won a gold medal in the World University Games with Team USA in the summer of 2006. Scouts are split on Federowicz's pro potential, however. Behind the plate, his leadership skills, experience and plus throwing arm are undeniable. His receiving style, with a high elbow, concerns some scouts. But the biggest questions for Federowicz are at the plate. While he has been consistently productive for the Tar Heels, his offensive numbers have declined each year. He's strong at the plate but has below-average bat speed. His power is to the opposite-field gap, and he struggles pulling inside fastballs. He projects as a below-average hitter with below-average power, but at catcher his bat might be good enough. His track record of success alone makes him one of the top five college catchers in this year's draft class.
