Jacob Turner - huge upside, no real negatives besides being a H.S. SP
Tyler Matzek - huge upside, coors
Casey Kelly - good upside/no real risk-good floor, but AL East
Matt Moore - huge upside, but control is a true concern even with his improvement, also AL East
Jennry Mejia - really good upside, but his secondary pitches are sorely lacking ... most likely to be a RP of anyone in this list
Christian Friedrich - good upside, but again coors
Mike Montgomery - good upside, but not as much as everyone else

Jacob Turner (98 mph)
Casey Kelly (93 w/ 2 plus secondary)
Christian Friedrich (95 w/ 1 plus secondary and a poor CH)
Tyler Matzek (97 w/ 1 plus secondary)
Jennry Mejia (97 with average secondary)
Mike Montgomery (94 with average secondary)
Matt Moore (94 with 1 plus secondary)

Velocity and secondary pitches is certainly not the be all end all for ranking pitchers, but I do find this helpful information to know. As Hybrid said, knowing that Kelly has two plus secondary offerings means that his floor is much higher than the others. Also, to a large extent, you can't teach speed.
