BP breaks down top 12 picks

The Giants are always a difficult team to project as they play their hand very close to the vest, both in their dealings with the media and with the scouting industry as a whole. They filled the system with young long-term talent in last year’s draft, and might feel some pressure to find something that provides less risk and a quicker turnaround with such a high pick. The top college bat available at this point is likely South Carolina first baseman Justin Smoak, but Gordon Beckham could find himself in the mix if the Giants are one of the teams that believe he can stay at shortstop; other teams are about 50/50 on that proposition. There are some wacky rumors about the Giants going totally off the board and taking an up-the-middle college player that is not Gordon Beckham, somebody that nobody else has in their first-round mix, but there are always a few wacky rumors around, and it’s difficult to sort out the few that have basis in fact.

 

I really hope this stays a wacky rumor
