    Seems a little too high for Smith to for-go his Sr. year. I think he'll be back.

    I think it's safe to say that he can improve on the 6th round pick. After all, there's only 7 rounds....

    No, actually, there are a lot more than 7 rounds. Nobody has ever been able to tell me exactly how many there are for sure, but it sure doesn't stop at 7. A prime example of this is Mike Piazza, a 62nd round pick back in the early 90s.

    It pains me to say it, but as a 6th round pick, I think it's a pretty safe bet that Smith is now a professional ballplayer. Guys in the first 10 rounds generally get pretty good money to sign.

    G-Man is correct. You cannot equate this with the NFL or NBA drafts. 6th round is not a low pick.

    he is gone. i predicted he would go in the 8th if a righty but since a lefty he moves up 5 to the 3rd. I was off a couple and he goes in the 5th.


    there are 50 rounds yet many teams opt not to choose that many.


    there used to be a lot more. mike piazza was picked in the 62nd round by the dodgers only because his godfather is tommy lasorda.

    Thanks for the correction...I misread it wrong, I saw "coverage of rounds 1-7" and registured "7 rounds". My bad.

    I noticed that there were two BRCC guys drafted on the first day.
