Even Taillon is pojectable.  It all comes down to who lives up to the potential and who doesn’t.  You have to trust in what the scouts saw in them to want to draft the kid. Baseball drafts are just like hockey drafts they are crap shoots on high school kids.  Every team drafts an obvious stud who does turn out great. Every team drafts an obvious stud who busts. Every team drafts a projectable player who busts and every team drafts a pojectible player who is the diamond in the rough and everyone complains on how their own team missed on an obvious star, along with every other team too!  Give it a break
