Crawford sparkled as one of the best players in the nation during his freshman and sophomore seasons. His march toward the top half of the draft has not gone well, however, starting last summer, when he hit just .189 in the Cape Cod League. His junior year has been disappointing, as has that of preseason No. 1 UCLA, which was flirting with .500. Crawford has used several different stances at bat, searching for a solution. While he has average raw power, Crawford doesn't make enough contact to get to it and had struck out in 27 percent of his at-bats. His problems at the plate have him profiling as a utility player, and some scouts have criticized his energy level. His best tools are his speed, defense and plus arm. He shows advanced playmaking ability at short and is particularly adept at charging slow hoppers and making the throw on the run.
