  1. Love these mock drafts! I’d say this one is about as spot on in my opinion as mock drafts can get. I was a little surprised to see Austin Beck at #3… I woudn’t personally put anyone outside this mock’s top 11 inside my top 11 however. In my opinion, Pavin Smith and Peter Solomon are a little bit over-drafted in this mock since Solomon has been struggling and Virginia alumni have yet to prove much at the big league level. I was also fairly surprised not to see Tristan Beck or Brady Mcconnell mentioned in this mock.

    • Beck is still dealing with a stress fracture in his back. He was scheduled to be back in mid-March, but…here we are…and no Beck. McConnell is definitely in the running for a first round selection. Don’t be surprised to see him in the next mock.
