8. Philadelphia Phillies: Pavin Smith, 1B, Virginia

The Phillies are said to prefer a polished college bat, and Smith, a 6'2" 210 lb lefty, fits the bill here. He makes hard contact, has at least above-average power and an advanced feel for hitting and is one of the toughest hitters in the collegiate ranks to strike out, with fewer whiffs (eight) than homers (10) in 193 at-bats through Monday.
