Atlanta Braves 2014 Mock Draft: Projecting Top 5 First-Round Targets
Alex Brandon/Associated Press

The Atlanta Braves will look to bolster their farm system and find future help at the MLB level in a few weeks when the 2014 MLB draft gets underway.

The Braves could go a number of different directions with the No. 32 overall pick in the compensation round acquired from the Brian McCann deal.

Last year, the Braves selected Jason Hursh (No. 31 overall), a right-hander out of Oklahoma State University. Hursh got an invite to this year's spring training and is currently pitching for Double-A Mississippi, where he sports a 3-3 record and 3.45 ERA.

Will the Braves go the college route or select a high school standout? Will the Braves target a positional player or another pitcher?

In the last five years, the Braves have selected four pitchers (Hursh, Lucas Sims, Sean Gilmartin, Mike Minor) to just one positional player (Matt Lipka). Of those five picks, three were out of college and one was from Georgia— a place the Braves have picked apart.

With that in mind, here's a look at potential targets for the Braves to take in the first round of the June 5 2014 MLB draft.
