2008 MLB Draft: Omaha or Bust

In the first 4 rounds we saw 9 players get taken from the baseball program:
3. Royals take incoming freshman 1B Eric Hosmer
6. Marlins take incoming freshman C Kyle Skipworth
13. Cardinals take 3B/1B Brett Wallace
16. Brewers take incoming freshman C Brett Lawrie
18. Mets take UTL/P Ike Davis
40. A's take C Petey Paramore
42. Padres take incoming freshman LF Jaff Decker
52. Marlins take incoming freshman LHP Brad Hand
135. Padres take OF Jason Kipnis
So this leaves us with Raoul Torrez, Greg Bordes, Mike Leake, Matt Newman, and for the moment, Kiel Roling, as players with consistent playing time coming back for next season, plus we'll be relying on Andrew Pollak or Coby Cress behind the dish. So are we going to be rebuilding or reloading after we take Omaha? Please comment.

Update, Kiel Roling #197 to the Rockies.
