Scouting Report

Rock Rucker is one of the most intriguing athletes in the 2012 draft class. He's as physically impressive as any player out there and he's only going to grow further into his long 6-foot-5 frame. He's still learning how to use his height to create leverage at the plate and when he does a plus power tool is going to emerge. The results are highly inconsistent right now and he's crude, but when he does square the ball up it's going a long way.
