MLB Draft Preview: 2014

Compiled By: DP Staff - June 5, 2014

HolmesG-signingday1The workouts have concluded, the notes have been made, scouting miles have been logged and final organizational meetings have been had... and now it's finally draft time! OwingsChris-gb14As we mosey around South Carolina throughout the calendar, we are often asked to make predictions on the upcoming draft, who will be taken, which round will they go in, who is most signable, etc. We've asked a few questions of our own to some 'bigwigs' and threw in our two cents as well.

But this year is a different animal altogether... Check out the drastically new draft rules from year's past: 2014 Draft / Slotted Signing Bonus

lylesjordan-astros11.jpgThe entire process has always been a crapshoot, even for those making the final decisions so we aren't going to take a stab at which round, but below is what we did come up with regards to who has a chance to be drafted this week. Admittedly, every single scout that we spoke with said we would learn alot from this draft to be a little more bold with our prognostication in future years.

Our crystal ball comes with far less confidence than past years, with only one sure thing, but here it is:
