A first look at the 2011 MLB draft
Anthony Rendon projects as No. 1; there's also a 'young Ryan Howard'
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.
For the first look at 2011 via Keith Law -- this file is actually a very good companion to the upcoming College World Series in Omaha -- you must be an ESPN Insider.
