Next year's draft class looks much stronger and deeper than this year's in almost every area, with high school right-handers possibly the lone exception. There's one premium college bat, a number of top-flight college arms -- and a strong mix of prep talent across the board. While this year's draft only offered maybe eight to 10 true first-rounders -- players who'd be picked in the top 30 in almost any year -- the 2011 class could very easily see first-round talents squeezed out of that range because there's just so much talent in the country.
Let's dive into it.
Keith Law takes his first look at the 2011 MLB draft -- not in any type of mock format, but in a listing of players to watch for at the college and prep level. The main name to know is Anthony Rendon (Rice), but there are comparisons to Ryan Howard and Scott Kazmir here.
