That's supposed to be Top picks not too picks. Can't edit on my phone.
|1 week 2 days ago||It doesn't matter where||
It doesn't matter where player gets drafted they could be destined for a career in the minors. Even too picks, just like NFL, can bush and never make the Big League team. But on the other side any player, no matter where drafted, could become an all star or even a bench player but still receiving a pro contract. Some kids bloom late or in his case go from being a two sport player to focusing on just Baseball a his skill shoot through the roof. He has the athleticism, he would just need to be more refined as a baseball player and he could be something big, or fall flat on his face.
|1 week 2 days ago||Well yea they obviously do||
Well yea they obviously do from the school they commit too. But that doesn't mean they get it from the team that drafts them if they sign. Unless they put that in the new CBA which I think that would be pretty huge (and unlikely) as almost every HS player would leave. I mean why wait for the pros when you can get paid and then come back later for free?
|1 week 2 days ago||Well the pool money that is||
Well the pool money that is used in the top 10 can be used for the 11-40 guys. So Tori Jr could get 150k and 50k would have to come out of the top 10 pool money. So anyone in 11-40 can get 100k and it will have no affect on the teams pool. If a team goes over their pool amount by more than 5% then they lose a draft pick and I believe have to pay anything over the pool twice to the league. So say the Cubs, who can go to 11 million with their 5 percent. Uses the full 11mill. Then they have to pay an extra 500k because they went over by 500k. That's my understanding of the system.
|1 week 2 days ago||Then there is no way we see||
Then there is no way we see players being offered a bonus + a scholarship to a school later on. It would be pointless to do so now unless a team somehow manages to sign every player in the first 10 to underslot amounts which would be 1. Hard to do and 2. Means they got low end players and could've gotten some better value.
|1 week 2 days ago||In the past they could, but||
In the past they could, but the team could decide paying that much plus some bonus money wasn't worth what the player would provide and just say never mind you can go to school and the player is out of luck unless he budges. But now as I said in my post I don't think they can do that anymore.
|1 week 2 days ago||Actually I'm wondering if||
Actually I'm wondering if that's still can happen with the new CBA. Before they could easily but now with the pool can teams offer a full ride and a bonus amount? No way can they get 4 years of school with the 100k max after round 10 without going into their top 10 round pool. So I'm wondering if they can actually do that without touching the pool money.
|1 week 2 days ago||They need to fill 2 teams||
They need to fill 2 teams almost with their draftees with most teams having 2 rookie teams. Plus you got 6, 7 if you include Ext ST but not including Major team, teams you need to have a lot of players. Especially when most kids will retire if they don't have a future when in the minors for too long or are released. That's also why the MLB draft doesn't get as much hype as the NFL or NBA. Too many rounds and no time to talk about each pick while you wait for the next one.

Ben was drafted in the 14th round. He is a serious prospect, sort of, not one of the throw away late family draft picks.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Just wondering how often you||
Just wondering how often you will come out with these. Good read and can't wait for the rest.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||No. The 2018 and 2019 games||
No. The 2018 and 2019 games were a break like the 2000 and 2001 year. It was supposed to give the schools chances at different opponents among other things. What ND is doing is ending the rivalry almost entirely.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Obviously walking back and||
Obviously walking back and forth is fine but when you do it at his pace it gets distracting. It's a great speech non the less, it was just an observation and opinion, we can still have those right?
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Yea it got kinda annoying||
Yea it got kinda annoying watching him go back and forth.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Peppers is going to be a CB||
Peppers is going to be a CB more than likely.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||"I think he's been drinking"||
"I think he's been drinking" lol he really knows how to make a press conference interesting.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||2nd round for Swope might be||
2nd round for Swope might be a little early in my opinion. He will probably go 3rd maybe even 4th.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I don't see Jarvis Jones||
I don't see Jarvis Jones falling to the 2nd. I think the Bears might be a player for him at 20 if he is there and a couple teams after the Bears could take him as well. I'd be very surprised if he fell into the 2nd. But then again, a lot of teams could have a no draft on him with his health and off field problems.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Yes he is||
Yes he is
|8 weeks 2 days ago||As a Bears fan I second this||
As a Bears fan I second this if the Bears were to draft him.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Wow. Prayers for everyone and||
Wow. Prayers for everyone and I hope who ever did this gets everything he deserves and more. Coward.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I hate that so much that||
I hate that so much that people complain about thread titles. Really? Your gonna read it anyways stop complaining. At least he is giving you the needed info in the actual thread.

|10 weeks 4 days ago||Not everyone knows the school||
Not everyone knows the school every recruit goes to and how many recruits are at every single school.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Yea when he first posted it,||
Yea when he first posted it, it did not say his name, which is why I said what I said.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||As I post this, you put his||
As I post this, you put his name in. Oh well
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe, for the people who||
Maybe, for the people who don't know what prospect you are talking about, you can actually say his name. Maybe.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||The guy told it was gonna be||
The guy told it was gonna be a complete blow out. Told me that Penn State was comparable to some very low Div 1 teams and asked if I really thought they would come that close to losing. If you saw the conversation you would understand.

Last game I predicted it be a 5 point game (got told I was wrong) and it turned out to be 7 point game (nick?). I say UM wins 68-65

You want to go back on your KenPom projection? I still think they win but my within 5 points looks very likely.
