2007 Draft Rounds 1-5

Round 1
#30 Andrew Brackman, RHP
North Carolina St University

The concern with Brackman heading into his first full season as a baseball player only was how durable he would be. The former basketball standout had never spent an entire college season as a starting pitcher and he ended up being shut down with a tired arm late in the year. Still, the pure stuff, including a 97-mph fastball when he's 100 percent, intrigues many scouts and despite the inconsistent year, he's still in the first-round fray as more of a college project than an advanced arm.

Round 2
#94 Austin Romine, C
El Toro High School
Romine hasn't always played scout league ball, limiting how often he's been seen outside of the regular season. Though he's been tough to evaluate in the past because of an ever-changing offensive approach, he's settled in and has shown good hitting potential to go along with a strong throwing arm. The only question is if Kevin's son will go pro or follow his brother's path and head to ASU.

Round 3
#124 Ryan Pope, RHP
Savannah Collage of Art & Design

Round 4
#154 Bradley Suttle, 3B
University of Texas
Playing for a major program, Suttle certainly got plenty of looks this year. He can do some nice things with the bat, but doesn't project much power and doesn't run well. Defensively, he's OK at best. As a draft-eligible sophomore, he does have the leverage of coming back for his junior year at Texas. Right now, though, he looks more like a backup or platoon-type player.

Round 5
#184 Adam Olbrychowski, RHP
Pepperdine University

    Thought that the draft was a bit disappointing for the Yankees - other than their first round pick, nobody there looks like they'll ever be more than a backup. And there are the Wil Nieves-es of the world to fill that position. I guess it's alright considering how FEW picks they had (I don't even know when they traded them away...)

    Still, you can't really go wrong loading up on pitching, eh? Hopefully, this guy doesn't turn out like the LAST 6'11" flamethrower with injury issues that pitched in the Bronx... (aww, he was good enough to win 17 games a year, but somehow still came off as unimpressive)
