Jeffers has put up remarkably consistent numbers in his three years at UNC-Wilmington, and is a career .325/.452/.623 hitter with the Seahawks through the first 54 games this spring, with none of his individual season lines far off from that mark. Since becoming an everyday player as a sophomore, Jeffers has tapped into double-digit home run power, though there are scouts who are skeptical of that sort of home run production continuing at the next level. A team not convicted in his power might be out on Jeffers, as he's a below-average runner with an average arm behind the dish, and questions about whether he can stick there. If a team buys into the bat being real--and there's also wood bat track record to suggest it's not--he could be an interesting offensive option in the middle of the top ten rounds.
