No, it's never too early to ask about a draft. Sixteen months before the 2009 draft, here's how we project the first five picks:
1. Kyle Gibson, rhp, Missouri
Already has good stuff and will get better because his command and projectability are excellent.
2. Alex White, rhp, North Carolina
Needs to add some more polish but he has a heavy fastball, plus slider and two years to improve.
3. Stephen Strasburg, rhp, San Diego State
New England Collegiate League's No. 1 prospect last summer has strong frame, strong fastball.
4. Matt Graham, rhp, Oak Ridge HS (Conroe, Texas)
Shows good fastball, curveball and command in a classic 6-foot-3, 195-pound package.
5. Mychal Givens, ss/rhp, Plant HS, Tampa
Next year's version of Tim Beckham also shows a plus fastball off the mound.
