Revised Final Scout 2016 MLB Mock Draft

With so many new rumors popping up on draft day morning, Jeff Ellis is taking that information and spinning out one last mock draft for the first 41 picks.

So much news in the air today so last mock is a go. So here it is a last chance 6.1.

http://www.scout.com/mlb/story/1644678-scout-s-2016-mlb-draft-central?s=304 Talk is Atlanta is off Kyle Lewis and on Ian Anderson or Corey Ray. In turn Milwaukee has had about 10 players connected to them today, and every team seems to be changing their minds. I am going to go with picks based on my gut, my best info here, and past history. Last year, every single late-developing rumor proved wrong, so based on that, I'm going what I expect based on months of analysis and leaving the rest as smoke.

Clearing my head only using my best sources and trying to think about this purely from logical perspective. It's kind of like a puzzle using what I know to try and make the pieces fit. With that said, below is my revised, final take on the top-41 picks.

So much news in the air today so last mock is a go. So here it is a last chance 5.1

Talk is Atlanta is off Lewis and on Anderson or Ray. In turn Milwaukee has had about ten players connected today, and every team seems to be changing their mind. I am going to go with picks based on my gut, my best info here, and past history.

Last year every single week before rumor proved wrong, so going with what I expect based on months of analysis and leaving the rest as smoke.

So clearing my head only using my best sources and trying to think about this purely, logically. It's kind of like a puzzle using what I know to try and make the pieces fit.
