One of the unique parts about the Major League Baseball draft, particularly the high school prospects, is a lot of them don't just focus on baseball. 

As much as we love the sport and think anyone would be foolish to waste their time doing anything else, young athletes have other interests that can be of great benefit, both from an educational and financial standpoint, which play a role in their futures. 

We have seen in the past draftees leverage their ability to attend college on a football scholarship to get a better deal from the MLB team that took them.

The new collective bargaining agreement, which instituted the ridiculous draft slot, has hurt teams trying to negotiate because they can't spend a lot of money on one pick without hurting their chances of signing other draftees.
