Pick 1.6: Colin Moran, 3B, North Carolina
In Moran, the Marlins get one of the most complete players in this year's draft. He's a seasoned hitter who offers good power and incredible plate discipline. He's also a solid fielder with soft hands.
While he wasn't as highly regarded as former teammate Dustin Ackley coming out of college, Moran has a higher ceiling. He should fit both of Miami's requirements for this year's first-round selection: a franchise-caliber third baseman and a relatively inexpensive signee.
Competitive Balance Round A, Pick 35: Matt Krook, LHP, St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.)
Krook burst onto the scene early in the 2013 season, flashing great velocity and an above-average breaking ball. He was wildly inconsistent for the remainder of the season, dropping him on everyone's draft board. When he's on, he's a top-20 talent, which means signing him will be hard for a cash-strapped Miami organization.
On talent alone, Krook's selection gets an "A," but it's hard to not envision him playing for Oregon next year.
Pick 2.44: Trevor Williams, RHP, Arizona State
Williams is one of the most confounding prospects in this year's draft. Based on stuff alone, he's a top-20 pick. Unfortunately, he was terribly inconsistent this season, alternating strong starts with duds. Regardless of the results, he excelled at going deep into games.
If Williams can regain his command, he could be a No. 3 starter.
Competitive Balance Round B, Pick 73: Colby Suggs, RHP, Arkansas
A legitimate reliever prospect, Suggs has the stuff to close games at the big league level. He possesses a sinking fastball that can reach as high as 97 mph and a curveball that he has used to devastating effect in the SEC.
