Use the money you would otherwise spend on that second rounder and take the best player available. I'm not a big fan of Boras either, but Weaver will be good and is probably not far from being a major league pitcher right now (well, except for the fact that he needs to be signed by a major league team). Or a solid SS in Drew would be nice as well.
Fungo, I agree 100%.

No second round pick, no supplemental "sandwich" pick, you gotta take a real good talent with pick #15. Like you said -- Drew would give us a real five star prospect in a place we need it in the MIF, and Weaver would really give us some depth in the organization as far as pitching. And, maybe Randar can correct me if I'm off with this statement, but wasn't Weaver supposed to be the most ML ready pitcher in last year's draft?

It'd be a real joy to have him and B-Mac come up at the same time in 2006...

Yes, he was the most MLB ready, the most MLB-ready starter siinice priior at least...

IMO, it is stupid for him to return. He has nothing left to learn staying and only risks injury.

I'm not against those guys or drafting a Boras client, but do the Sox have stomach for it? Those guys are both the closest thing to a sure thing you usually find. They may not ever be #1 starters or super-stars, but within a year or so of beinig drafted, they'll be ready to contribute to the MLB club...

Best part is they'll both be seniors IIRC, meaning they have less leverage.
