Righthander Devin Jones was Mississippi State's top prospect and entered the season with a chance to go in the first four to five rounds, but he wasn't able to hold down a spot in an injury-depleted Bulldogs rotation and missed time with a bout of food poisoning. He still has big stuff, with a live arm, pro body at 6-foot-3, 180 pounds, and a fastball that hits 95 mph in relief. He also has a power slider that has scraped 86 mph. Veteran scouts aren't enamored with Jones' lack of consistency, but his raw stuff could still make him a single-digit selection.
