John's Draft Board

This is NOT a prediction, this is my personal draft board for the first round. Note that I am an amateur at this, an informed one perhaps, but I've never had any actual scouting training. But this is how I will rank guys going into my real-time Twins Shadow Draft on Tuesday. This is based on scouting reports, video, personal observation of a few of these guys, conversation with people who know a lot more than I do, and intuition.

1. Andrew Miller, LHP, North Carolina
2. Brad Lincoln, RHP, Houston
3. Brandon Morrow, RHP, California
4. Tim Lincecum, RHP, Washington
5. Evan Longoria, INF, Long Beach State
6. Kyle Drabek, RHP, Texas HS
7. Clayton Kershaw, LHP, Texas HS
8. Luke Hochevar, RHP, Forth Worth Cats
9. Joba Chamberlain, RHP, Nebraska
10. Jeremy Jeffress, RHP, Virginia HS
11. Max Scherzer, RHP, Missouri
12. Drew Stubbs, OF, Texas
13. Greg Reynolds, RHP, Stanford
14. Pedro Beato, RHP, St. Petersburg CC
15. Hank Conger, C, California HS
16. Dan Bard, RHP, North Carolina
17. Lars Anderson, 1B, California HS
18. Travis Snider, OF, Washington HS
19. Matt Antonelli, 3B, Wake Forest
20. Bill Rowell, 3B, New Jersey HS
21. Cedric Hunter, OF, Georgia HS
22. Chris Parmelee, 1B, California HS
23. Kyle McCulloch, RHP, Texas
24. Jordan Walden, RHP, Texas HS
25. Brett Anderson, LHP, Oklahoma HS
26. Chris Perez, RHP, Miami
27. Adam Ottavino, RHP, Northeastern
28. Mark Hamilton, 1B, Tulane
29. Chris Marrero, 3B, Florida HS
30. Brooks Brown, RHP, Georgia

Just thought it would be worth taking a look at with the draft coming up in a few days.

Interesting that he has Drabek and Kershaw over Hochevar.

i agree with his top 5, maybe not in that order. though if hochevar is throwing like he did last year, hes in my top 5
