Still he was a top 5 pick going into the draft this year.
He's not playing in the bigs next year.

I would be shocked if they go with a college guy. They haven't picked a college guy with their 1st rounder since Savery in 2007 and before that it was Utley back in 2000. They love high school guys with raw tools. However Renfroe, Judge, Wilson, and Ervin aren't your typical college bats. Each has some raw tool(s) to work with.

Personally I'm hoping Domonic Smith makes it to our pick. Whoever they pick though, they will immediately be up there with Biddle as our #1 prospect.
