This first round should be intriguing
I recently overheard -- and then joined -- a conversation between a small group of scouts sitting behind home plate prior to a college game over the weekend. The initial topic was the draft and all of its uncertainties, but that quickly grew into a debate over how to fix the draft. The most interesting comments came when they began bantering back and forth about how the first round might go next month.
This is when I chimed in.
"It's going to be so bad," one of them said to the group. "[We could] get a top-15 guy 20 picks later. This might be the craziest [draft] I've ever been a part of."
So I had to ask: "What makes you say that?"
