Projects to 40 homers and high average, plays decent defense at first, a bit slow but decent baserunning ability, switch hitter but natural lefty.

He's a college player, so if he progresses well, we could seamlessly replace Konerko when he is done.

They can't go wrong. Smoak and Beckham are both real good picks.

My gut is saying Beckham, but it would be cool to take a power hitting switch hitter.

Yonder Alonso to Reds. Smoak and Beckham both available.

ESPN compares him to a switch hitting Adrian Gonzalez, but with more power

And with the 8th pick in the draft...the Chicago White Sox select James Gordon Beckham, SS, UGA.
