Knapp is an incredibly unsexy, 2nd round pick. He is a college catcher with kind of all around tools. The defense could use some work as he has not been playing the position long, but the tools are there to be an above average defender down the road. The bat could be average for both power and hitting. There is really nothing special about the profile other than he is a catcher.
That being said, it looks like a bit on an overdraft but if the Phillies save some money they can grab slightly better players with their two third round picks. The other thing is that Knapp will stay up the middle which means there is at least a decent chance he can at least get to the majors as a back up. The Phillies have had success developing college players recently and Knapp might have more projection than Cameron Rupp did 3 years ago.
I thought the JP Crawford pick was the best player available at the time. There are plenty of holes and he likely will never be an impact bat, but given how the picks fell he was easily the best player available. He likely won’t come for less than slot, but he becomes a Top 5 prospect for a team that really only has one SS prospect (Quinn).
As for Quinn, there is a lot of time to figure out any positional problems down the road, but this pick is entirely unrelated to how the organization views Quinn. Quinn will succeed or fail at SS entirely independent of Crawford’s development.
As for the rest of the top 10 I expect at least another college pitcher and hitter, probably a senior money saver, and some high upside HS hitters and pitchers. I would not be surprised if the third round picks were a HS OF and SP with plenty of projection and upside.
