Hawkins had been steadily climbing the draft board after his all-around, eye-opening performance at the 2012 NHSI tournament earlier this spring. Of all prep position players, Hawkins easily has the best bat speed and loads projectable raw power.

An excellent athlete given his size, Hawkins has surprising plus speed as well as a low-90s arm from the outfield. He’ll likely move from center field to a corner spot given his power potential, but that’s far from a knock on his abilities.

As a young power hitter, Hawkins will need to make significant adjustments at the plate as a professional, especially in terms of his pitch recognition and plate discipline.

Despite his explosive athleticism and ahead-of-schedule baseball skills, Hawkins is still a very raw prospect and will need considerable time to develop in the minor leagues. Therefore, 2016 is a safe and realistic estimated time of arrival.
