Keith Law Mock Draft
Big change near the top in Law's final first-round draft projection
This is my "final" mock of the first round of the 2014 Rule 4 draft, but I'll add updates over the course of the afternoon on Thursday as I hear new things. The common refrain from scouts and execs is that no one has a good idea of what they're doing because there's so much uncertainty above them, starting with Houston at the first pick. Very little will be settled until the Astros make a decision, and that probably won't come until the hour before the pick is made, just like last year.
Please note that this covers only the first round, which is just 27 picks because the New York Yankees, Texas Rangers, Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles forfeited their first-round selections by signing free agents from teams that had received qualifying offers. (The Toronto Blue Jays have two first-round picks.)
