    San Diego had him pegged at one time as their first pick, which would have made him the first player picked overall.

    You think teams got a little hesitant to pick this kid because of his a-hole brother J.D.?

    Makes sense. They can't blame anyone but themselves.

    you can guess his agent I bet and now teams draft players that they know are signable. Some of these Boras clients are hurting themselves by hiring him now. Im guessing he has boras.

    If anyone wants to see how a Boras agent "can" end up...look at Matt Harrington...guy was a 1st round pick...wanted tons of money....didnt sign in his first draft....was an early pick too...then went drafted much later in the 2nd draft...and is now working at Best Buy

    and u can bet Jered Weaver has him as well cuz he was projected #1 also in many mock drafts and fell to 12.

    But, the thing is...Weaver and Drew will still get a lot more money then people around them....though they will have a significant decrease
