With the 2014 MLB Rule 4 draft set to commence Thursday night, it’s time to take one final stab at predicting how the first round will unfold.

For the third consecutive year, the Houston Astros have the No. 1 pick and will drastically impact how the first round unfolds. In 2012, they decided to cut a well-below-slot deal with 17-year-old Puerto Rican shortstop Carlos Correa. As a result, the organization was able to sign all of its key, early-round selections.

Although this year’s crop of talent may be weaker compared to previous drafts, it’s loaded at the top with impact pitchers in Brady Aiken, Carlos Rodon, Tyler Kolek, Aaron Nola, Sean Newcomb and Kyle Freeland, who all have the potential to come off the board in the first 10 slots.

But which player will the Astros select with the No. 1 pick?

Here’s a look at my final mock draft of the year.
