Comments: extra early picks always helps. Joba fell in the real draft due to injury concerns, while Kennedy was picked earlier than people expected. Interesting that the Yankees picked both of them in real life. I like Masterson. Samardzija is a signability risk due to his football commitments, but with extra picks it is a reasonable gamble in the Mock Draft. The real draft has Anderson as a potential steal in the second round. I also like Hankerd and Ambriz. Both classes look pretty solid to me, considering the differences in talent distribution between real and mock.
