Draft Eligible Sophomores to Watch

Kentrail Davis out of Tennesee is my personal favorite. He was a 14th round draft pick by the Rockies in 2007. He is built like a rock thanks to a job helping his Dad as a bricklayer growing up. This makes me believe he will have a good work ethic and continue to get better. He is small in stature at 5'9" but is around 200 lbs, evoking thoughts of Kirby Puckett with his power and speed in a small package. He will be limited to LF in the pros due to mediocre route running and a below average arm. I could see the Rockies taking him at #11 this year.
D.J. Lemahieu for LSU, Mike Nesseth for Nebraska, and Sam Dyson for South Carolina are a few others to watch.
