well i guess last yrs 1st rd of draft comes to mind. their are some later sleepers but that would take me too long. I'll add some later.

Ive highlighted in Red my top tier & in Blue my 2nd tier & green 3rd tier(not necesarily in this order though). All are good prospects though.

1 Luke Hochevar NO SCHOOL RHP R/R 6'5" 205 1983-09-15 NS 350K
Comments: Arguably the top arm in last year's draft class, he didn't come to terms with the Dodgers and re-enters. He's been pitching indy ball and showing good velocity with some rust. When he's on, he's in the mid-90s with a plus breaking ball as well.
2 Gregory Reynolds Stanford U RHP R/R 6'7" 220 1985-07-03 4YR 350K
Comments: No one moved up the charts late in the season more than the him. He beat fellow draft classers Brandon Morrow and Tim Lincecum to work his way into top 10 cconsideration. His fastball sits in the low 90s and couples it with his breaking ball.
3 Evan Longoria Cal St Long Beach 3B R/R 6'2" 213 1985-10-07 4YR 350K
Comments: The best college bat in the draft, Longoria can play all over the infield. He doesn't have one tool that jumps out for scouts, but can hit for average and power.

4 Brad Lincoln U Houston RHP L/R 6'0" 200 1985-05-25 4YR 350K
Comments: Has been a two-way player while at Houston. He can touch the mid-90s with his fastball and has a hard curve. Coming off a strong Cape season, he followed that up with an outstanding junior year on the mound. Only 3rd tier because of arm problems. High Risk High reward
5 Brandon Morrow UC Berkeley RHP R/R 6'3" 190 1984-07-26 4YR 350K
Comments: Fastball-splitter duo will be tempting for any team looking for an advanced college arm. With those two pitches, he could move to the bullpen, where he has previous experience. His weight and his diabetic condition make a relief role more possible.
Maybe 2nd tier

6 Andrew Miller UNC Chapel Hill LHP L/L 6'6" 195 1985-05-21 4YR 350K
Comments: Front-runner to be the No. 1 overall pick entering the season because of his size and his stuff, but never ran away and hid despite a statistically solid season. Drafted by the Rays in the third round of the 2003 draft, he didn't sign. When his slider is on, it's good enough to get big league hitters out now.
7 Clayton Kershaw Highland Park HS LHP L/L 6'3" 220 1988-03-19 HS 350K
Comments: Considered to be the top high school arm in the draft, Kershaw's fastball sits in the mid-90s to go along with a big curve and workable changeup. An oblique injury hasn't scared teams off.

8 Robert Stubbs U Texas Austin CF R/R 6'4" 200 1984-10-04 4YR 350K
Comments: A toolsy college outfielder, scouts think Stubbs is a gold-glove caliber CF right now. He's got a power and speed combination that is tempered by his strikeout rate.
9 William Rowell Bishop Eustace Prep Schoo 3B L/R 6'5" 215 1988-09-10 HS 350K
Comments: With power potential from the left side, he's moved to the top of the high school bat list. A shortstop in high school, he's destined for third as a pro. Close to top tier

10 Timothy Lincecum U Washington RHP L/R 5'11" 170 1984-06-15 4YR 350K
Comments: An undersized right-hander, turned down going pro as a draft-eligible sophomore and it's paid off. He's skyrocketed to the top of the first round thanks to a dominating junior season. The PAC-10 career leader in strikeouts, he has an unorthodox delivery, leading some to worry about durability. He's got a plus fastball and plus, plus curve, leading some to compare him to Roy Oswalt. If put in the pen, he could help a big league club out this season.

11 Maxwell Scherzer U Missouri Columbia RHP R/R 6'2" 210 1984-07-27 4YR 350K
Comments: When the season began, was being mentioned among the top picks in the country. Biceps tendinits that forced him to miss several starts has made some scouts pause. With a fastball that can reach the upper-90s, a plus slider and a bulldog mentality, some see him as a short reliever in the future.
12 Kasey Kiker Russell County HS LHP L/L 5'11" 185 1987-11-19 HS 350K
Comments: Only questions about makeup have kept him from being at the top of high school pitching depth charts. Fastball sits in mid-90s and he throws a changeup and curve as well.
13 Tyler Colvin Clemson U LF L/L 6'3" 190 1985-09-05 4YR 350K
Comments: He has a good hitting approach, though sometimes he's too aggressive. He hasn't shown much power, but there's room for growth there. He has enough speed to possibly stay in center.
14 Travis Snider Jackson HS RF L/L 5'11" 230 1988-02-02 HS 350K
Comments: He has the chance to be a prototypical corner OF or 1B in terms of power, though there are questions about his defense. He's as complete a high school hitter as there is in this draft.

15 Christopher Marrero Monsignor Edward Pace HS OF R/R 6'3" 210 1988-07-02 HS 350K
16 Jeremy Jeffress Halifax County Sr HS RHP R/R 6'0" 175 1987-09-21 HS 350K
Comments: He's been clocked in the triple-digits and sits in the upper-90s. He's been compared to Dwight Gooden, though his breaking pitch doesn't measure up. Only 3rd because hes young. If he gets control together he moves up

17 Matthew Antonelli Wake Forest U 3B R/R 6'1" 195 1985-04-08 4YR 350K
Comments: Always a good hitter with outstanding patience and decent speed, he's added a little more power in his junior year. He's athletic enough to play a number of positions as a pro.
18 Kyle Drabek The Woodlands HS RHP R/R 6'1" 190 1987-12-08 HS 350K
Comments: Doug's son may have the best arm in the draft. A good athlete who would be a shortstop prospect as well, he throws a mid-90s fastball and two outstanding breaking pitches.
19 Brett Sinkbeil Missouri St U RHP R/R 6'3" 195 1984-12-26 4YR 350K
Comments: Came out of a start in late April with an oblique injury and missed a lot of time. Before the injury, he was outpitching the other college ace in Missouri, Max Scherzer. When healthy, his fastball can hit 94 mph and he throws a plus slider.
20 Christopher Parmelee Chino Hills HS RF L/L 6'1" 205 1988-02-24 HS 350K
Comments: A smooth left-handed swing provides line drives now and presents the kind of power potential scouts like. His arm may play in right field and he's a good baserunner, but the bat is what will get him drafted.
21 Ian Kennedy U Southern California RHP R/R 6'0" 195 1984-12-19 4YR 350K
Comments: Has been on radars for a long time, being drafted in the 14th round back in 2003. He hasn't been bad in 2006, but it's been a far cry from his first two college seasons. He's lost some velocity on the fastball, though he still knows how to pitch with an aggressive style and hard curve.

22 Colton Willems John Carroll HS RHP R/R 6'4" 175 1988-07-30 HS 350K
Comments: He's got three above-average pitches -- fastball, curve, slider -- and a projectable body. Curve hasn't been as sharp, though he took his game up a notch over the course of the season.
23 Maxwell Sapp Bishop Moore School C L/R 6'2" 220 1988-02-21 HS 350K
Comments: Scouts like his bat more than his glove. He has left-handed power and has an idea at the plate. Improved conditioning has helped his defense, but many still think he won't stay behind the plate.
24 John Johnson A Crawford Mosley HS OF L/R 6'4" 195 1988-08-18 HS 350K
25 Hyun Choi Conger Huntington Beach HS C S/R 6'0" 205 1988-01-29 HS 350K
Comments: Switch-hitting catchers are rare, especially ones with power, a big reason why he's now considered the top backstop in the draft. Improved defense has people believing he can stay behind the plate.
26 Avery Morris Motlow St CC RHP L/R 6'3" 175 1987-03-28 JR
Comments: The Rays' third-round pick from last year, he played two ways in JC and actually broke a bone in his wrist sliding headfirst. His best offering is a plus, plus curve, though he also has a fastball that can hit the mid-90s.
27 Jason Place Wren HS CF R/R 6'3" 205 1988-05-08 HS 350K
Comments: He has power, speed and arm strength that make him an enticing corner outfield candidate. He's got plus makeup and plays the game hard, a kid who only played baseball in high school.
28 Daniel Bard UNC Chapel Hill RHP R/R 6'4" 200 1985-06-25 4YR 350K
Comments: Has one of the best arms in the 2006 draft class, but consistency has eluded him somewhat. Has a plus fastball that can touch 97 mph and a breaking ball that isn't as effective. Command has been an issue at times, and just when it looked like he was turning a corner and moving up the charts, he struggled again leaving his status in question. Has top tier potential.
29 Kyle McCulloch U Texas Austin RHP R/R 6'3" 185 1985-03-20 4YR 350K
Comments: Became Texas' Friday starter last year and helped it win the national championship by going 12-4. He started slowly in 2006, but finished strong. He has been able to get the fastball up to the low-to-mid 90s to go along with a plus breaking ball, but it's his knowledge of pitching that really makes him intriguing.

30 Adam Ottavino Northeastern U RHP R/R 6'5" 215 1985-11-22 4YR 350K
Comments: Aggressive on the mound, he often has the stuff to match with a plus fastball, a slider that is an out pitch at times and a less consistent curve.

Okay heres one late rd very good sleeper whose upside is top tier

254 Dellin Betances Grand Street Campus RHP R/R 6'8" 215 1988-03-23 HS 350K
Comments: About as projectable as they come with his size, though he's still very raw. His fastball has hit the mid-90s at times and he's shown the makings of a hard curve.

again myself and others will add some as time goes along!

OSU bucks, will you post a list of available players? Some names that come to mind are Pedro Beato, Betances, Collin Balester, Alberto Callapso, Bill Rowell, Bard, Smardjja. Those names maybe too high profile, I dont know. Just let me know if you have a list of players I can choose from.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.
