Should the Nationals draft Bryce Harper?

I'll respond with another question.

Can he play right field?
Can he play second?

The nationals need a right field. Roger Bernadina is finally stepping up a bit. However the team needs to find a permanent solution for the Right Field slot. They've got a lot of young talent that has solidified their line up for years to come. However if they truly want to compete in September, and onto next year, they need to solve the right field problem.

Harper can hit. He can play right. Hes got a good work ethic. He makes mistakes, but hes 17, who at that age doesn't.

The Nationals have an opportunity to develop and own another star. I say draft him.
