New York Yankees MOCK DRAFT

  1. Mark Antonelli, 3B, Wake Forest (17 in the real draft)
  2. Mark Hamilton, 1B, Tulane (76 in the real draft)
  3. Jeff Manship, RHP, Notre Dame (426 in the real draft)

New York Yankees REAL DRAFT
  1. Ian Kennedy, RHP, USC (34 in the mock draft)
  2. Joba Chamberlain, RHP, University of Nebraska (11 in the mock draft)
  3. Zach McAllister, RHP, Illinois HS (77 in the mock draft)
  4. Colin Curtis, OF, Arizona State University (not selected in mock draft)
  5. George Kontos, RHP, Northwestern (not selected in mock draft)
Comments: The Yankees took some intriguing gambles (or overdrafts, depending on your point of view) with Kennedy and Chamberlain. That could look really good in two years, or really bad. McAllister is one of my favorite high school pitchers, and I like both Curtis and Kontos. The Mock Draft has two strong college hitters with Antonelli and Hamilton. Inman is a sound pick in the fifth round if signable, which he might not be.
