Will teams go for the high ceiling and possibly injured studs or the safer pick and the average star?  No one lays up in the first round.

There are many names swirling around the first pick. Tyler Stephenson, Carson Fulmer and Tyler Jay, and Dansby Swanson lead the list. I think ultimately the Diamondbacks go with Swanson. Swanson is the best all around college player in the draft and is high on the list of the Diamondbacks higher-ups.

This draft is loaded with young pitchers. Each team has scouted the players they like and have compiled their lists. This mock draft is just who I think each team will pick. A lot of teams have been linked to a lot of different players.  Enjoy!
