Nationals MOD #2

Here is MOD #1 for reference.

In MOD #1, I said that all things being equal I'd like to add some high ceiling talent, as it's sorely lacking in the Nats organization. From my rough list below, it looks like I'll have plenty of college pitchers and high school bats when pick #68 comes around but maybe not the same degree of high school arms and college bats. But there's no way to tell what will be on the board without a crystal ball, so I'll prepare for all scenarios.

I've began grouping draft prospects into a few lists as you'll see below. If you agree or disagree, or have other suggestions for guys to target, please let me hear it in the comments. No one of us can read everything or hear everything, so there's a great chance that I'm missing something. All players are in alphabetical order by last name in their grouping for now.

Top prospects that are not really even worth me dreaming about landing

College/JuCo P: Mark Appel, Jonathan Gray, Sean Manaea, Braden Shipley, and Ryne Stanek

College/JuCo H: Kris Bryant, Colin Moran and Hunter Renfroe, Austin Wilson (unless he really slides due to injury concerns)

HS P: Trey Ball and Kohl Stewart

HS H: Nick Ciuffo, JP Crawford, Jonathan Denney, Clint Frazier, Austin Meadows, Reese McGuire and Dominic Smith

Prospects that could fall out of round 1, but unlikely all the way to #68

College/JuCo P: Chris Anderson, Jonathon Crawford and Bobby Wahl

College/JuCo H: Tim Anderson, Phillip Ervin (sliding due to injury), Aaron Judge and DJ Peterson

HS P: Phil Bickford (tough sign), Ian Clarkin, Hunter Harvey, Connor Jones (tough sign), Rob Kaminsky, Matt Krook (tough sign), Kyle Serrano (tough sign) and Devin Williams

HS H: Ryan Boldt (tough sign b/c of injury concerns?), Chris Okey, Cord Sandberg, Riley Unroe (tough sign) and Justin Williams

Prospects that I could see falling to #68 (the list prospects I expect to be picking from)

College/JuCo P: Aaron Blair, Alex Balog, Ryan Eades, Kent Emanuel, Buck Farmer, Marco Gonzales, Alex Gonzalez, Jason Hursh, Corey Knebel, Trey Masek (injury concerns), Andrew Mitchell, Dillon Overton, Teddy Stankiewicz, Colby Suggs, Andrew Thurman, AJ Vanegas, Trevor Williams, Tom Windle and Kevin Ziomek

College/JuCo H: Hunter Dozier, Ryon Healy, Eric Jagielo, Jared King, Andrew Knapp, Michael Lorenzen, Michael O'Neill and Chad Pinder

HS P: Jake Brentz (tough sign), Andrew Church, Tyler Danish, Hunter Green, Clinton Hollon, Austin Nicely, AJ Puk (tough sign), Cal Quantrill, Carlos Salazar, Blake Taylor and Garrett Williams
