With the college season well underway, it's time to start evaluating the 2008 draft crop, which looks to be a little light on top-shelf talent.

Every year's draft coverage begins the same way. You start making the calls, and the nearly-universal reaction is, "Really, it's already time for this?" The answer is yes, as while the major league season has only kind-of-sort-of begun and minor league Opening Day is still nearly a week away, the 2008 draft is creeping up on us, with many of the top college players only offering up 8-10 more looks for teams getting ready to spend millions on this year's amateur talent pool.

Bryan Smith

The top 15 from the summer amateur league includes some with something left to prove next spring, and some whose stock in the 2008 draft is moving up.

The nation's best summer league earned its reputation in 2007, boasting depth that (outside of Team USA) the other summer leagues combined couldn't touch. However, it was a strange year for the league, as no one stepped up to be the easy pick for its top prospect, while most of the talent was confined to one team, Falmouth.
