Its about the time people start to evaluate different units. Just a few short weeks away from the start of the season and here's my take on the FSU defensive line in 2010. I'll call myself cautiously optimistic but as we all know the odds of us being worse than last year are pretty slim. The question is, how much the Noles will improve up front. We are still at the very least, a year away from being dominant/elite at the point of attack, but in 2010 I expect that we'll at least be effective.
As we told you months ago, Jacobbi McDaniel is not and was not a serious baseball prospect. He said he would need $1.5 Million to sign, and he was drafted about 985 picks too late to get that type of signing bonus.
A FIRST round pick in the 14-18 range just got offered 1.7Million.
FIFTH round picks get offered 170K-300K.
There's some ridiculous internet rumor that McDaniel, a THIRTY-THIRD rounder, not even in the top 1000 picks, got an 800K offer to sign. A 33rd rounder getting 4X the amount of an average 5th rounder?
I'd like to see a reputable news outlet report that offer with info from the Brewers.
I believe that rumor to be false and plan to ask Brewers people and whatever scouts I can get ahold of about that.
