2012 MLB Draft Results: Rockies Get Solid Feedback For David Dahl Selection

The Colorado Rockies had only selected only selected two high school position players in the first round of the draft prior to Monday night, but they made an exception for Alabama prep OF David Dahl at the No. 10 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft. Dahl has drawn comparisons to Grady Sizemore, Colby Rasmus, Johnny Damon and Jacoby Ellsbury in terms of his skill set and ceiling, and over at Rockies blog Purple Row they are excited about the pick:

Like Kiley McDaniel of ESPN, I buy into Dahl's swing and his ability to add power to his game, and he already possesses the hit tool and speed to hit for a high average in the minors early on. Without insider knowledge into his signability, I don't foresee any issues in getting Dahl under contract and hopefully he will be playing center for Grand Junction as early as game one.

For more on Dahl, here is a list of scouting reports compiled by Rockies blog Purple Row:

The team also added Radford RHP Eddie Butler, and they initially plan to keep him on track to be a starting pitcher. Here is the schedule for Tuesday, where Rounds 2-15 will unfold:
