As for your point, after the top 6 or so, I could see just about any order being plausible. Its mostly for fun and seeing whatever information may be shared in the course of these threads.
Yeah, Contreras is viewed as a real prospect in some quarters.
The interesting thing about this process is not picking the stars IMO. Everyone knows who the candidates for stardom are most of the time.
The interesting thing is looking back at the guys who are not high on the lists but turn out to be productive major leaguers or better. Guys like Hanigan. Zack Cozart who many didn't want drafted. I also think Todd Frazier's emergence is exciting -- he was highly touted but many though of him as a non-starter.
The guy I'd most like to succeed from the current group -- Devin Lohman. Not a Redszone favorite, but maybe the Reds think differently.
