Yankees 2018 Community Mock Draft War Room


Well, hell. I'm not sure which way I am going. I have four targets for the first round. But they could all be gone, or someone could fall into my lap. Who I take in the first round will shape the rest of my draft. There are some later round players that I am hoping will fall to me, but I may have to grab them early to make sure I get them. I'm leaning towards prep at the top and college in rounds three and four. There seems to be more high school talent where I am picking in the first two rounds than college talent.

There is one college arm that I will grab if he falls to me. If not, I am torn between a prep arm or a college bat. The college bat I want won't make it to me in round two, but he is a bit of an overdraft. The arm is pretty well lined up at pick 23, but someone could sneak in and grab him. If I do take a prep arm in the first, I can't take some prep arm sleepers I like in the later rounds. There are some good college bats I could grab later in the draft as well.

I love the community mock draft!
