Shortstops drafted first, second and third

The Baseball Tonight crew discusses why shortstops were so desirable in the 2015 MLB draft.

The first round is already in the books, which means it's time for the second-guessing to begin. I don't kill picks, and I don't like to say picks were bad or wrong, but there are picks I liked more than others, with my big board my means for comparison.

Picks I loved

Kevin Newman, Pittsburgh (19th overall): Second on my board, Newman is a plus runner and true shortstop with a great swing that has made him one of the toughest hitters to strike out in Division I.
