Points to take away:
- The 2006 draft looks underwhelming at the moment, though much can change after spring games. The scouts see 2006 as being thin on position players. My take is this is not a problem for the Giants who draft pitchers predominantly.
- They see signability as a factor in the Giants pick.
- They note that the Giants don't have any pattern to their picks, college vs. H.S., hitters vs. pitchers with their early picks.
- Their best guess as to the top player in each of these categories are Evan Longoria, Oregon State RHP Dallas Buck, The Woodlands (Texas) High RHP Kyle Drabek, and Monsignor Pace High (Opa Locka, Fla.) 3B Chris Marrero.
