I have seen such varied rankings on these guys, just wanted to see if anybody had some inside information - or a gut feeling that one of these could be a super star. Also last years draft class was considered weak - after the fall is it still considered that?

I'd put Betances right now at #1 but that's just me, because of his ridiculous ceiling

You've really asked 2 questions - who might rocket up the rankings, and who might be a superstar?

Actually, I'd say the answer is ALL of them - its a nice list that's obviously already been filtered for projectability. They could all rocket up the lists this year, and each of them has at least an outside chance to be #1 or #2 (I'm not really sure what Superstar even means anymore). Only caveat is that I don;t know much about Talbot.

Seems like the question now is where to rank them relative to each other.

I like Guerra potential wise. He is 17 and more than held his own in full season. His fram and age suggest he's going to gain a lot of mph on his pitches and he seems like a smart pitcher. Only 3 HRs in 81 IP.

The two guys who I would describe as the closest to being "can't miss guys" are Inman and Hurley

Some guys who could see a huge rising in their stock would be Chamberlain, Jeffress, Lincoln, Guerra and Betances.
