Where the hell is Mike's way too early, complete guess with no inside information attached to it but still wicked pissah projected list of who will and won't sign? It seems like I've been waiting minutes for it.
Round 29: Tyler Dearden, OF, Rancocas Valley HS, Mount Holly, N.J. No. 449 on the BA 500:
Dearden had a strong showing at the Maplezone Invitational in January, thanks to potent lefthanded bat. He flashes plus bat speed and his bat shows violent life in his follow through. While he showed some hard hit ability in spurts this spring, he still has to improve his timing at the plate and learn to loft the ball to get to his power. Dearden's profile is limited; he's a slightly below-average runner and shows fringy arm strength, meaning he's likely to play left field or first base at the next level. Dearden will be 19 on draft day and is committed to Penn State, where he could boost his draft stock and be a draft-eligible sophomore in 2019.
I saw this kid play about 5 times at Rancocas Valley over the last 3 years. Only once this year, and he had 2 hits . Has a very nice swing. Saw him last year hit a HR over the 400 FT. sign . He's grown a lot since last year, in a good way.
It's in the works! Glad to hear there is some anticipation.

The vast majority of the board actually expects everybody to sign for underslot so we can fit in all the good players. You're not reasonable, but fairly accurate. I start with your projections and hope for one more guy.
