Gonzaga outfielder Drew Heid wasn't drafted as a junior, but not because scouts don't like him. His family puts a big emphasis on education, so he wanted more money than teams were willing to offer to buy him out of his final season. At 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, Heid isn't big, but he's an absolute hitting machine from the left side of the plate. He hit .386/.475/.523 as a sophomore, .355/.408/.479 as a junior and .395/.467/.614 this year, breaking Larry Patterson's 1977 school record for most hits in a season with 92. He's not just another metal-bat wonder, either, as he batted .403/.484/.566 in the West Coast Collegiate League in 2008 and .427 in the Alaska League last summer, more than 100 points higher than his closest rival. Heid has little to offer beyond his bat, however. He's an average runner with good instincts in the outfield, but if he can't stay in center field he could just be a fourth outfielder because doesn't have much power.
