    Riley Greene taken in the top five. He gone - no surprise.

    Nick Lodolo taken seventh overall. I remember being really, really impressed by him in the College World Series back in 2017 as a freshman.

    I know there is a lot to go but if we get Allen, Barco and Owens to campus look out!! All three could eventually be a Friday night guy!!!

    Look out for the Diamondbacks for Allan. They have a bunch of compensation picks and a huge bonus pool, and their most recent pick looks like a bit of a reach and could be an under-slot player.

    Which pick were you referring to? 26? That kid was rated #40 per BA. The guy they drafted at #16 was rated at #12.

    This is not something I follow with any depth so I don’t know what is normal.

    Yeah, Walston at 26 is the one I think seems like a bit of a reach, though I'm not going to pretend to have a comprehensive knowledge of North Carolina high school baseball.

    I am out of free stories on BA but #16 and #18 still haven’t been picked (in their Top 500 rating). Then it starts getting pretty wide open after about #22.
