Drew Cumberland's days as a player may be over, but he could have a bright future as a coach.

Sadly, those hopes were short-lived.

In the last year, I have picked up tips on players from relatives, fans, neighbors, coaches, and scouts. Everyone has an opinion on the draft's most underrated player, and often, it's a player on their team, in their area, or on their block. But along the way in listening to these suggestions, a few actually stick out and rise above their peers. A few actually should be two days away from offering major league organizations good value.
