2011 MLB Draft Results: Nationals Take 25 College Players On Day Two

If you can say one thing about the Nationals drafting strategy on Day two of the 2011 MLB Draft, it's that they certainly had a type. 25 of the 28 players they drafted on Tuesday were collegiate players, not taking their first high school player until the 16th round. It's clear that the Nationals want known quantities. They don't want guys who could be or may be, they want some guys that are.

But they did take three high school players who have pretty good potential in Deion Williams, Hawtin Buchanon and Josh Laxer; but it remains to be seen if any of those players will break their collegiate commitment and sign with the Nationals. Here is the complete list of players drafted by the organization on day two, via MLB.com.
