Prospect Comps

Was just thinking about the top players drafted in the 2007 amateur draft and who they would compare favorably (production-wise) to if they stay healthy. This is based on my magic eight ball that I just bought and from what I've read on them. I'm not too good with pitcher comparrisons so any opinions will be helpful. Please feel free to add others!

David Price- a healty Mark Prior comes to mind
Mike Moustakas- Jeff Kent, but breaks out earlier
Josh Vitters- For some reason Adrian Beltre pops into mind (minus that one season)
Matt Wieters- Joe Mauer with less .avg, plate discipline and more power
Matt Laporta- I'm tempted to say Manny-lite. Maybe Justin Morneau???
Jason Heyward- David Justice
Rick Porcello- Beckett is often used as a comparisson.

Wish all of you early seasonal tidings!
