The Flying Dutchman

With the fourth pick of the draft, the Washington Nationals selected Ryan "Dutch" Zimmerman, 3B for Virginia.

Dutch is regarded as the best fielder in the draft, and probably already has a major league quality glove.

He doesn't have the power upside of Alex Gordon, who was selected two picks ahead of him, but he should develop into a nice line-drive hitter, with 20 homer power.
