Welcome to the final draft rankings for 2008. There is plenty of movement, with late draft risers such as Andrew Cashner, Jake Odorizzi, Zach Collier and Anthony Hewitt. I'm going to let the rankings speak for themselves, and keep in mind these rankings are not a reflection of how the draft may shake out, as signability and organizational needs will ultimately determine which players are selected where. In regards to the Brewers, they are poised for a big year, with six picks among the top 62 overall selections, and you have to feel confident that Jack Zduriencik will re-stock the farm system with talent now that he actually has extra, early picks to work with. Truly, a big draft is on tap. To view scouting reports of all 100 players entered in the Brewerfan.net database, be sure to click on the Player Profile drop-down menu and select all, and in the meantime, visit the fan forum to be a part of all of the conversation leading up to the draft, and Brewerfan.net's unrivaled draft-day coverage.
