Because of the abstract nature of scouting 15/16/17 year-olds, the reports can and will vary a great deal. For example: I've heard crazy hyperbole about Mexican RHP Luis Heredia, with some people calling him the best Mexican arm in recent memory, with Ynoa-like projection. Others, like Klaw, mention that his body might have some question marks and his secondary stuff is fringy. At this point, its best to look at these reports on the surface and remember that player development is the name of the game.

Another thing to keep in mind: If the Rangers don't make a splash by signing Peguero (another player with conflicting scouting reports), or another top 25 name, it doesn't mean they won't be able to acquire projectable talent as the year progresses. In a weaker class, at least on paper, the names attached to the team might not be familiar to the average fan, or even the die-hard fan, but finding the hidden gem is the most exciting aspect of amateur scouting, and the Rangers have one of the most competent international departments in baseball. So rest assured, that even with limited resources, Daly and Co. should be able to find interesting talent to add to the stockpile.
