Today is draft day. The Jays pick at number twelve in the first round. In some years the Jays would have a clear picture as to who would be available at this stage of the draft. But this year it seems there are at least six and maybe more names associated with the Jays. Talk amongst yourselves about who the Jays could pick.

The standard answer as to who the Jays will pick is best player available. You generally do not pick for need at the top of the draft. The best player available for the Jays at pick 12 could be a college hitter such as Travis Swaggerty or a high school players such as Matthew Liberatore, Nolan Gorman or Jarred Kelenic. It does appear that the talent is evenly distributed in the middle of the draft so the Jays could go in several directions.
