2010 MLB Draft: Who Will Be Drafted? ACC Edition

Players are obviously grouped according to school, but there is no rhyme or reason to the actual order. Potential top-five round selections in bold. Any player on the list that absolutely shouldn’t be there? Any clear misses? Any players on my own list of near-misses (below) that deserve to be promoted to the first list? Any recommendations for next conference breakdown? Seen any good movies lately? So many questions, precious few answers…

  1. Steve says:

    Pat Dean is one of the elite pitchers in the ACC and he is probably one of the top 10 left handed pitchers available in the draft. He is currently 5-0 with a 2.93 ERA and 30 strikeouts on the season..he is also 3-0 against ACC schools with a shutout at #13 Miami, a complete game home vs. Duke, and a win on the road at #10 Clemson. I believe that Mr. Dean will be going in the top five rounds and should be updated to bold on your list.

    • Rob Ozga says:

      Not really sure what to add here, except to say you’re right on the money. Dean probably deserved the top five bold, especially considering he’s recent bump in velocity and quickly emerging change. I do have questions about his best secondary pitch, however. There are conflicting reports as to whether his mid-70s curve or his low-80s slider will be the better professional pitch. I think the curve is the better long-term bet, but others like that slider. Either way, solid lefthanded fastball + above-average breaking pitch (either CB/SL) + rapidly improving changeup + potentially average fourth pitch (whichever of the CB/SL you believe in less) + plus command = very likely top five round pick. Good call.

  2. Mark says:

    NC STATE- Chamra and Schaeffer should be bumped up. Chamra has pitched well all year 89-93 with movement, their late inning guy low era and more k’s than ip, Schaeffer has hit great and is good behind the dish, i think he has 8 homers now.

    MIAMI- Pelaez should be bumped up too. hitting well and very fast on the basepaths.

    • Rob Ozga says:

      Schaeffer and Pelaez were two of the closest misses for me, but I had a difficult time declaring with absolute certainty that they’d be drafted at this point. I tried to be cautious with my list, but I may have gone a bit overboard in that regard. Schaeffer is up to a near definite now (for me), with Pelaez and Chamra really close. Speaking of Wolfpack catchers, is it too early to start touting Pratt Maynard as a potential first rounder in 2011? Also, thanks for the update on Chamra’s velocity…love hearing stuff like that.

  3. Mark says:

    Chamra has been up to 95. Check out the link. I saw him at 94 vs wake but his name is flying around draft talks.

  4. David says:

    Looking at John Hinson’s (Clemson) season – average, power, stolen bases – defense OK playing out of position at third base (Probably a natural second baseman), I would consider him a top five round prospect.

  5. Al says:

    Dean is an expected top 3 round pick. I have read this anywhere that has his name. He pitched against me as a kid and we all saw this coming

  6. brain says:

    Dallas Poulk has to be in the top five rounds. Was 1st team ACC and 3rd team All-American. Wouldn’t doubt if Jake Buchanan or Kyle Wilson went near the top five rounds either.
