2014 MLB Draft: Big Board 1.0
The IBI's Jeff Ellis has gone on record saying that he is a big fan of this year’s draft. It is partially because last years had so little depth, but it is because to him this is the deepest draft in years. The Indians have three picks in the Top 40 and four picks in the Top 65, so they stand a chance to get a lot of talent this season. Jeff has put together his first Big Board of the draft season with rankings and reports on the top 41 players in the draft.
