2018 MLB Draft: Top College Seniors

Prospects


Our 2018 College Season Preview is in full swing, and over the past week, David Seifert, our Director of College Scouting, has taken an in-depth look at many of the premier prospects entering the ’18 campaign. In addition to ranking the Top 100 College Prospects, we also unveiled the Just Missed list and the Best of the Rest.

Now, it’s time to a look at the nation’s premier seniors.

College seniors accounted for 70 percent of the players selected during rounds 9-10 of the 2017 draft. Twenty-three of the 30 picks in the 10th round and 19 of 30 in the ninth were seniors. Clubs value talented seniors, not only for their baseball abilities, but also for their lack of leverage which leads to well below slot signings. This allows clubs to have greater flexibility with their bonus pools. Typically top 10 round seniors sign for around $.10 on the dollar, unless the player comes from a top 25 program. Those players usually sign for around $.30 on the dollar.

Here are your seniors to watch this season:
