2013 Draft Profile Kris Bryant

First Look Kris Bryant
1B          San Diego
6' 5"    215 Lbs.
Bats Right   Throws  Right

Kris Bryant was an elite prospect coming out of high school, however scouts questioned his defense and many clubs were frightened by his strong commitment to San Diego. Teams bypassed on Bryant until the 18th round when the Blue Jays took a flier on him. Bryant chose to take his talents to the collegiate level where he has since anchored the Torero's lineup. In his sophomore campaign, he hit .366 and connected for 14 home runs. Bryant is an offensive juggernaut; he can hit for power, contact, and he can draw a walk. However his best tool is his power, which would rate as a 70 on the scouting scale. Bryant will wait for his pitch and then hit it a mile. His wrists are very quick and he generates excellent bat speed. He projects as a middle of the order hitter in pro ball. He currently plays 1B, however if a team sought to get more value out of him he might be able to make transition to third. There is no guarantee that he would be able to remain at the hot corner as he continues to fill out. Regardless, with the pop in Bryant's bat, he should hear his name called early in the first round.
