Here is Keith Law's article from today on the 2011 draft and it's top players:
Edit - I had to delete most of the article in order to adhere to the forum rules.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.
Top names: Anthony Rendon, 3B, Rice; George Springer, OF, UConn; Alex Dickerson, OF, Indiana; Ricky Oropesa, 1B, USC; Levi Michael, 2B, UNC; Harold Martinez, 3B, Miami; Preston Tucker, 1B, Florida; Jason Esposito, 3B, Vanderbilt; Jackie Bradley Jr., OF, South Carolina; B.A. Vollmuth, SS, Southern Miss; Matt Skole, 3B, Georgia Tech; Zach Cone, OF, Georgia; C.J. Cron, C, Utah
Rendon is the star attraction here, with a great short stroke with good follow through, outstanding plate discipline and plus defense at third. Springer, Dickerson, Cone and Bradley are all great athletes with some raw aspects at the plate but the potential for four or five tools. Skole is the older brother of Jake Skole, the Texas Rangers' first pick in this year's draft. Martinez has bounced back from a disappointing two-year stretch to re-establish himself as a premium bat in the '11 class.
