COMMENT

Signability a big issue here. Some people think the Dodgers overdrafted Withrow by a round or two, but I like him. The supplemental picks are both polished college guys, whether you prefer the Mock Draft hitter or the Real Draft picher depends on taste I suppose. High school guys in the next three slots for both drafts. . .the Mock SD went with two guys who fell due to signability reasons in the real draft, but did have the right amount of talent for those slots. I love Real draft pick Kyle Blair, who I thought was a supplemental round talent. If they sign him he's a possible steal in the fifth. Overall both of these classes look reasonable to me.
