  1. Love the list - nice to see Taijuan Walker get so much love. Would you rank him above Hultzen if draftees were included?

  2. Erlin, Hutchison, and Holmberg are much too high for my taste. Good to see you go with your gut on your rankings and not what others think. You could turn out to be right. I really like Erlin just not as much as you.
