2011 MLB Draft Prospects: Jed Bradley Of Georgia Tech A Sure First-Rounder

UPDATE: Jed Bradley was selected by the Brewers. Links to more scouting reports here.

The 2011 MLB Draft begins Monday night at 7 PM Eastern on MLB Network, and Georgia Tech left-hander Jed Bradley is expected to be among the first players selected. SB Nation's John Sickels ranks Bradley among the top 40 players available in his list of top 2011 MLB Draft prospects, for example, touting his ability to throw three pitches with "excellent command."

Indeed, in his most recent 2011 MLB Mock Draft (subscription required) at ESPN, expert Keith Law has the Cleveland Indians making Bradley the eighth overall pick this year, though he's among the several candidates they'll consider.

Bradley pitched 98 innings over 16 starts for the Yellow Jackets this season and put together some impressive statistics, including a 3.49 ERA, a .239 batting average against, and a strikeout-to-walk ratio of nearly 3-1 (89 strikeouts, 31 walks). Further, he allowed just one homer all season, spanning 420 batters. It's easy to see why Bradley, who won't turn 21 until Sunday, is among the best prospects in this year's Draft. Unfortunately for Atlanta sports fans, there's simply no way he'll still be on the board when the Atlanta Braves draft. They own the 28th overall pick.
