Ole Miss also has passed the Bulldogs in terms of pro talent, such as Scott Bittle. The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder was a first-team All-American a year ago and when he's healthy, he has one of the best pitches in the draft. He attacks hitters with a ferocious cutter in the 84-86 mph range, and should saw of plenty of bats in pro ball with the pitch. It has amazing depth for a cut fastball as well. His fastball can reach 92 mph in shorter stints, though he pitches in the upper 80s with sink as a starter. His changeup also has become an average pitch. Bittle's medical history makes it impossible to know where he'll be drafted. He redshirted in 2006 at Northeast Texas CC because of rotator cuff tendinitis, so his shoulder has been an issue--either keeping him off the mound or keeping him from signing in the draft--three times in the last five years.
