Frazier is the third of three brothers that played at Rutgers, with both of his older brothers currently playing in the minors. Todd is the most athletic of the three, with a prototypical big-league build at 6'4", 215 pounds. The Frazier brothers have been well known for their exploits playing for Tom's River Little League team out of New Jersey. The youngest Frazier currently plays shortstop, but his size will prompt a move to either third base or right field at the professional level. Few hitters available for the 2007 draft have Frazier's raw power potential, and he has proven to hit for power with wood during the summer of 2005 playing on the Cape Cod League, where he finished second in slugging percentage (.480) to last year's third overall pick, Evan Longoria, and also flashes his speed by legging out three triples to lead the circuit. Frazier's swing at this point in time is pretty big, as he rarely gets cheated at the plate, and it is something he will have to tone down so he's not overmatched at the next level. To his credit though, he also does a very good job working the count, and has drawn a high amount of walks at every stop he has made. He hit .366 last year as a sophomore after hitting .295 as a freshman, showing his ability to hit for contact. Given all of those skills, he is a true five-tool talent that can hit, hit for power, run, throw and play defense, once he finds the appropriate defensive home that is, like few other players can.
