  1. Hmm…..
    Senzel is a top five pick, probably won’t last past 4.
    Braves taking a college arm, when the biggest need is catching and a college bat is absurd. They haven’t drafted a college player that high since 1991, much less a college arm.

    • For starters, the Braves haven’t drafted ANYONE this high since 1991, but back in ’09 they did take Mike Minor with the 7th-overall pick.

      I won’t disagree with you that they have a drastic need for some bats, but in regards to catching, they nabbed the #3 catcher prospect in last year’s draft (Lucas Herbert), so while they don’t have great depth at the minor league level, it’s not like the cupboard is barren. Also, there’s no catcher worth the #3 pick in this year’s draft. It might be a need to address in rounds 2-5.

      As for Senzel, he very well could be a top 4 pick, but we’re not as high on him as others. Still, at #14 in our rankings, it’s not like we think he’s total rubbish.

  2. Connor Jones would not be a bad pick for the Braves, but I think that it would be the kind of choice made by Frank Wren (remember Sean Gilmartin?). I think they take either Ray, Lewis or Puk….
