Red Sox Draft Preview, Part 3 of 4: Day One Mock Draft

In part three of our Red Sox Draft Preview, we bring you a Day One mock draft, courtesy of SoxProspects Forum Senior Moderator Adam Fox. It will be interesting to watch how the new bonus limits affect this year's draft, especially with respect to tough sign high school players.  In tomorrow's installment, I will cover a cross section of the players who Boston may be targeting this year.
