The operative word in any Major League Baseball draft is ceiling. Players with a high ceiling, and some track record of performance, are going to be taken very early.
One of the biggest reasons you hear a name like Oklahoma's Jonathan Gray, who was on draft radars before the college season but shot up as it moved along, is because his ceiling went from that of a mid-rotation starter to a potential No. 1 with increased velocity and sharper stuff this year.
So as the final days leading up to the draft count down, and teams put the finishing touches on their draft boards, we want to present you with a look at the players in this year's class who have the highest ceiling.
Remember, ceiling is the absolute best-case scenario for a player to hit, so the odds of all the names on this list—or even a majority—reaching that level are slim.
