If a guy is a closer prospect then it means he's probably not good enough for the rotation and has a good chance of another guy unexpectedly blocking him at closer. That's not to say you should avoid them all together if there's an obvious stud closer available like Feliz was last year, but don't waste roster spots on minor league relief pitchers. They're high risk/low reward types IMO.
I think his plan is to focus on SP'ing and hitting early in the draft and then draft a few setup men at the end of the draft and hope that a couple turn into closers.
a couple of others
Motte - STL (somebody is taking over for Franklin soon)
Adams/Gregerson - SD (Bell's not coming back)
Mcgee - TB (somebody is taking over)
Jeffress - highly speculative but Soria is probably getting traded
