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.

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 in the 20 rounds that are scheduled. Last year there were only 5 rounds, down from the 40 slots that had become the norm in summer past. 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 most years, with no sure thing, but here it is:
