Atlanta Braves: This might be my least favorite draft class. The Braves took a few intriguing relievers in hard-throwing J.R. Graham (4) and Navery Moore (13), and a raw college shortstop who might grow into an everyday second baseman in Nick Ahmed (2), but that's about it. The reluctance to go over slot is really hurting them, but I think it's fair to say I also disagree with a lot of their evaluations.
