OF - Jason Heyward
Heyward personifies an overlooked sophomore. As a rookie, he was the talk of spring training, smashing cars in parking lots (legally, with batting practice homers) and slamming Carlos Zambrano on Opening Day. But when you take his full-season numbers at age 20-21, they just don't look so elite: .277-18-72-83-11. That's late-round outfielder production. Heyward ain't no late-round talent. The residual hype will still warrant him being drafted among the top 20 outfielders on draft day and he could go .300-30-100-100 as a 21-year-old. If he does that, look out. He will be a fantasy first-rounder for the next decade.
An honorable mention: Michael Stanton, Florida Marlins
Stanton is another 21-year-old outfielder without a ceiling, having hit 22 homers with 59 RBI in two-thirds of a season. Since he won't project to hit for a high average because of a poorer strikeout-to-walk rate and fewer steals, he will go 10 picks after Heyward. His production of 35-plus homers and 100-plus RBI could be just as impressive, though.
