Law: Vanderbilt's Bleday shows power worthy of top-10 pick

JJ Bleday of Vanderbilt has emerged as one of the top college bats in this draft class with a spring that has him leading all Division I hitters in home runs with 23. He was fourth in my most recent mock draft, going to the Marlins. I've heard him connected with the Tigers at 5 as well and certainly think he'll go inside of the top 10. He has power and it looks as if any contact he makes will be hard, but there's a lot of disagreement among scouts about whether the large hitch in his swing reduces his future hit tool.
