Keith Law says, in his first mock draft, that Cubs “strongly linked” to this HS OFer in first round.

21. Chicago Cubs: Will Taylor, OF, Dutch Fork (SC) HS

Taylor is the biggest wild card in the draft — he still hasn’t really indicated whether he wants to play baseball or would rather go to Clemson to play football (as a six-foot, 175-pound receiver?), and also isn’t working with an adviser yet, which is very unusual. If he does say “let’s do that baseball,” he’s going to get $2 million-plus, and the Cubs have been strongly linked to him.

Sounds like Clemson is going to switch him to WR eventually.

Does anyone remember a draft where there has been less interest on this board than this one?

That was just because you were the only one on the board.

I’m hoping for Gunnar Hoglund.

He would have been top 10 before TJS.

Davis becomes the second Louisville catcher drafted in the first round in recent years after Dodgers catcher Will Smith, and also becomes the second catcher drafted first overall in the past three years after the Baltimore Orioles took Oregon State backstop Adley Rutschman in 2019. Before that, the last catcher drafted first overall was Joe Mauer, taken by the Minnesota Twins in 2001. Only three others catchers have gone with the first pick -- Steve Chilcott in 1966, Mike Ivie in 1970, and Danny Goodwin, who was twice drafted first, in 1971 and 1975.

from ESPN ....Schwarber?

Wicks from Kansas State. Hopefully they can add velocity.
