My thoughts on the first 10 rounds with options

Hello, with the draft just a couple days away I wanted to post some interesting picks and their projected round that I have gathered from all the great articles on prospects here at TCB as well as some other random scouting reports and lists.

I tend to lean more to left handedness in the first ten rounds because that is where I think we can find quality in those areas we tend to lack, especially LH young starting pitching with high upside. It seems to be a strength in this draft as well as some HS 3B talent in the 5-10 rounds. The talent for 3B might be a reason we could pass up on Bryant or take him since we could still get players later. Here is a mock of the first ten rounds I did with some options and some extra ideas with ranges below the list.

1-1 Mark Appel (RHP) P/Stanford or Kris Bryant (R/R) 3B/San Diego
2-40 Cord Sandberg (L/R) OF/HS (FL) or Jake Brentz, (LHP) P/South HS (MO) or Sean Manaea, (LHP) P/Indiana State or Ryan McMahon (L/R) 3B/HS (CA)
3-74 Kevin Ziomek (LHP) P/Vanderbilt or Hunter Green (LHP) P/HS (KY)
4-107 Andrew Knapp (S/R) C/California or Drew Ward (L/R) 3B, HS (OK)
5-137 Malik Collymore (R/R) 2B/Ontario Prep School, Canada or Cody Gunter (L/R) 3B/JC (TX) or Austin Nicely LHP HS (VA)
6-167 Tucker Neuhaus (L/R) 3B/HS (UT) or Willie Abreu (L/L) OF/Mater Academy (FL)
7-197 Nick Buckner, OF (L/L) North Shore HS (TX) or Drew Dosch (L/R) 3B/Youngstown State
8-227 LB Dantzler (L/R) 3B/1B/South Carolina
9-257 Erich Weiss (L/R) 2B/3B/Texas
10-287 Jason Monda (L/L) OF/Washington State

Other Intriguing names with round ranges:
Supp-2 Ryan Boldt, OF (L/L), Red Wing HS (MN.)
2-3 Jordan Paroubeck OF (L/L), Serra HS (CA)
Supp-3 Cody Reed, LHP, 6-5, 220, Northwest Mississippi CC
3-5 Justin Williams, OF (L/L) Terrebonne HS (LA.)
