2011 MLB Mock Draft: Latest Rumors and Predictions Leading Up to the Draft
Gerrit Cole

The 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft is just five days away and there is still a lot of confusion at the top of the draft.

Pittsburgh holds the No. 1 overall pick and they have their work cut out for them.

There are no less than three guys who can make a case for being the top pick, including UCLA starting pitcher Gerrit Cole, Virginia starting pitcher Danny Hultzen and Rice third baseman Anthony Rendon.

But despite all the confusion at the top, this draft class is stacked with talent, particularly pitching talent.

The talent in this draft comes mostly from the college ranks, but there are some stud high school players to be on the lookout for as well.

The leader of the high school pack is Bubba Starling, who happens to be the best athlete in this draft and offers more upside than any other player in this class. His commitment to the University of Nebraska and big bonus demands could push him down the board a little bit, but he has the potential to be a legitimate five-tool player.

We will have the latest news, notes and information to get you all set for the draft next Monday night.
