With the 38th Round pick (1143rd overall)

The Astros select 6'3" 1B Ryan Ford, out of Plano West HS (TX).

Back in 2008, Rivals.com had this to say:
Plano West is awesome and super soph Ryan Ford has a Ben Grieve-like sweet swing that gets hotter as the days do.

Ford was also ESPN's Player of the Week for June 2008. And, as a sophomore, was considered a "high college prospect."
