But is there a "quick sure thing" at pick number 8? According to BA there is no college arm after pick 7 worthy of the top ten.
My view is that you can load up on college arms in the draft without picking one in the first round. With number 8 pick, you need to go with the best talent. Even if it is not a pitcher at all.
