Cole has not developed as scouts hoped and some of his tools have backed up despite his steady offensive production for three years at Georgia. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder is a good all-around athlete with solid tools and a strong, toned build. Cole has transitioned to third base this season after playing the outfield, and some scouts think he could fill a utility role in pro ball or return to the outfield. While his arm gets average to above-average grades from the outfield, it has played closer to fringe-average to average in the infield. He is a below-average runner who is better under way. He has plus raw power, but his lack of power production adds to questions about his profile. He has average bat speed and some stiffness to his swing. Cole has focused more on hitting for average than hitting for power this season and scouts believe his bat has a chance to play. He has struck out in 22 percent of his career plate appearances and struggled with breaking stuff.
