Barring any trades, the New York Mets own the 11th overall pick in the upcoming 2013 MLB draft.

GM Sandy Alderson has placed an emphasis on developing hard-throwing pitchers and powerful hitters. Currently, the two most high-profile prospects in the farm system, Zack Wheeler and Travis d’Arnaud, exemplify this principle.

In the past two seasons, the Mets have been very erratic in terms of positional drafting. They used first-round picks on an outfielder, pitcher, shortstop and catcher. 

Thus, the Mets will likely continue to restock the farm system with the best talent available for their beliefs, rather than fill a certain positional need. In 2013, the draft is heavy on pitchers and outfielders.

But there are also no clear phenoms in this year’s draft, such as Bryce Harper or Stephen Strasburg. Many players may be a top-5 pick in one mock draft and a late first-round pick in another.

With this in mind, here are six potential first-round picks for the Mets in the 2013 MLB draft.
