2011 MLB Mock Draft...Because It's Never Too Early

0 of 10

    Scouts will tell you, minutes after the MLB draft is over, the task begins of putting together lists for who will be the top talent for next year's draft.

    Luckily, the scouts have me.

    Not really. Luckily, while scouting certain players for the 2010 draft, scouts have been quietly taking notes on 2011 prospects. Why else do you think the Orioles Joe Jordan has been taking in Rice Owls games?

    It sure as heck wasn't to see what kind of atmosphere number two pick Jameson Taillon MIGHT have been immersing himself in if he attended instead of signing with the Pirates.

    So here you have it, a ridiculously early look at the 2011 MLB draft...which is oh, so heavy on college pitching.
