Red Sox Draft Preview: Mock Draft

In part six of our Red Sox Draft Preview, we bring you a first round mock draft, courtesy of SoxProspects.com moderator amfox1. Keep an eye on whether small market teams at the top of the draft go for the top-tier signability guys, or if they opt for the next-tier talent that can be had at lesser bonuses. Some of the tough signs could slip to the late twenties if they don't go early. There are also rumors that some of the easier-to-sign players have pre-draft deals in place. At this point, we're just trying our best to discern between the substantive reports and the smokescreen rumors.
