The first player drafted overall in 2015, Georgia native Dansby Swanson sent shockwaves through baseball when he was traded to the Atlanta Braves in the winter of 2015 for a package that included ace Shelby Miller. Swanson, who immediately becomes Atlanta's top prospect and is one of the best shortstop prospects in all of baseball, is a five-tool threat who is expected to stick at shortstop. Swanon's best year in college was his final one, when he slashed a .348/.441/.648 line with 14 home runs for Vanderbilt. Pending a serious drop-off as he adjusts to professional pitching, Swanson looks like a near-lock to be a part of the Braves plan for the next decade.
