Eric Hosmer

According to Jonathan Mayo, the Royals are leaning towards taking Eric Hosmer at #3 despite the rumors of his bonus demands.  From reading various scouting reports, he seems to be the total package as a hitter and is a stud defender at 1st base.  I've also heard rumors that some teams may try him as a corner OF because he's actually very athletic and has some wheels for a kid of his size (16/16 on SB this season). 

PG Crosschecker wrote a glowing report on him earlier this year, comparing his bat at this stage of his development to ARod and Josh Hamilton and saying he's one of the best prep players of the last 20 years.
