I agree.  I mean, it's like the outfield version of Hobgood.

Hope the kid plays well but...man, this is extremely disappointing.

I really hope Elias and Sig and their magic fairy dust are right on this one.

Oh, damn. I hope he's not a Hobgood. 

Where was Hobgood projected the year we took him? I feel like he wasn't even expected to be a 1st rounder.

He was such an unexpected pick I don't know him well enough to throw that label on him.

I loathed the Hobgood pick as soon as it was made.

I've read up on him but didn't pay attention enough to think, you know, we'd actually be taking him.

The main issue I have with this strategy is what if other teams select your overslot targets?

Those teams don’t have the money though because of their cap.  Once guy gets past about 10 it has to be a top team with big slot allotment.
