Jenco’s best tool is his plus-plus speed. On ground balls, the lefthanded hitter is routinely clocked at between 3.7 and 3.8 seconds from home to first, and he has shown the ability to use his speed in center field. Jenco has been somewhat passive at the plate at times, but swung the bat with more aggressiveness this spring, leading some to believe he could be serviceable with the bat. Jenco has a long medical history, and has had multiple issues with his throwing shoulder, including a torn labrum that sidelined him for all of his true freshman season. His arm strength has come back slowly, and at full strength it grades as a below-average tool. Jenco redshirted, so he has two full years of NCAA eligibility remaining.

A friend of mine knew Noviello growing up, says he has serious attitude problems and got kicked out of a couple of schools. Hopefully he's just biased or the kid matures a little. (If we even sign him)

Jenco was also really big with middle school kids in the mid-90s.
"We really don't need the whole commercial break/warm-up routine every time a new reliever comes into the game. It certainly made sense in 1884 when they only switched pitchers when the starter was attacked by pickaxe or caught consumption, and no reliever was warming up because he was busy gambling and drinking." - JD
Brewers snatching up all the hard signs: Hooper, India, Everett
Just noticed that too. I don't really see any obvious underslot guys in their early picks (Rounds 1-4) so I kind of doubt they would be able to sign even one of these guys.
They are probably trying for one of them, but thinking abstractly I wonder if it would ever be feasible to blow past your cap and it be worth losing your next 2 first round picks. Of Kiley's top 200, about 50 of them were available on day 3. If you were to try this, it'd probably be a better strategy to take some in the first 10 rounds, as these guys are all considered very tough/impossible signs. Ok, back to the real world.
