I actually talked to him the day before the draft, and was somewhat bummed because everyone who talked to him, told him he wouldn't be drafted till after the 10th round. He was definitely surprised, but full of joy when he learned where he was drafted.
A common theme between all the Nats picks. I wouldn't be surprised if Strasburg expected to be drafted lower.
Based off the scouting video, I'm very excited about this kid. He looks like he could be special.
