A lot of old guys, a lot of young guys... but it's a solid ranking. There aren't a lot of sure things outside of the top 7 or so.

Seems a lot of people are overlooking Ramon Hernandez, it's rare I even see him drafted in the mocks.

Agreed, those three are definitely looking pretty good there... and to be honest, I'm seeing Soto going much later in my mock drafts (mostly due to people not doing their research). In fact, I don't think Towles got drafted in any of my mocks.... makes me feel kind of silly going after Martin early, I could literally get both of these guys after the 18th round.

Also, based on the mocks I've done, you're going to have to work up some more courage if you think you're going to get Martinez in the 3rd, or Martin in the 4th. I've seen VMart go as early as 27 or 28, and Martin usually two or three picks after him.

After his performance last year, and the way the Orioles look this year, it's no surprise. Could he bounce back? Sure... I hope so... but it doesn't seem like any less of a gamble than Soto or Towles.

I would bump up Salty over Rodriguez.

I think Towles has been very underrated in this one as well. I would definitely bump him up a few spots, along with bumping Varitek a couple.

Id bump McCann up over Mauer. I'll take the extra 10-15hr's and 25-30 rbis instead of the 20pts in avg.

Is anyone looking at any deeper sleepers? Soto, Towles, and Napoli appear to be on everyone's radar. I still have to do a little more research on the position, but I know that theres no way in hell I'm going to grab an aging Pierznski, I'm definitely going to have some sort of deep sleeper backup plan. If I'm going to get burned I'm going to take a guy who atleast has age on his side.

Napoli doesn't make my top 14 C's so I sure hope people are drafting him as a 2nd C. He easily has as much AVG downside as he does power upside and I still don't see him playing as much as other AL C's because of the depth at the position on that team.
