    Bryant could easily be the only 3Bman picked in the first round come June.

    North Carolina’s Colin Moran will probably be a sup-1 pick, but he projects s a second baseman.

    Right now, top prep prospect is (South Carolina verbal commit) Travis Demeritte

  2. BK says:

    So it looks like the sox will pick Bryant… The power is rare, very rare.

    • KevinRBLF says:

      Right now It looks like he might not be able to make it for the Red Sox to pick him.

      As a Red Sox fan myself I’d be ecstatic if he could be there at #7 for us I’m just not completely ocnfident he’ll make it there.

  3. Matt Grabusky says:

    I’d be surprised if he made it to 7. He is an impact bat that could get to the bigs pretty quick. It’s not out of the question though, depending on how the pitching goes the rest of the way.

    • KevinRBLF says:

      Yea I don’t think it’s unreasonable to hope he might theres a few circumstances that I could see it happening but to me it seems unlikely at this point in time we’ll have to see how things shake out the rest of the way.
