#Nationals have the No 23 #mlbdraft bonus pool at $4.4 million. Going to be interesting to see the bargains they pick in rounds 2-10.

My buddy Chris at prospectinsider.com is running their live draft chat. He said Smoral might be there at 48 for the White Sox, they loved him at 13, but he would be a tough tough sign.

Here is the scouting grades they gave to Hawkins for those who enjoy the number grading

Raw college players aren't my taste because they may be 26 before you straighten them out.
High school players are a different story. The Sox can (and should and better be) working on ridding him of his bad habits on day 1.

Hawkins and Smoral would be one great pair of picks.

Agreed but Jerry won't pay the price.

I didn't think Giolito would be there at 13...would have loved that pick even if he needed TJS. Not often you get the chance to draft a true #1 ace type arm.

High ceiling with Hawkins but I really don't like taking guys that have contact/ K issues. I know some guys can overcome that but we haven't seen the Sox have a good track record of developing guys with those issues and helping to fix them.

He did a backflip at the MLB studios right after he got drafted, too... in dress shoes. Scared the hell outta me.

Kenny already told him "no more back flips".

Good value at 24, but I'm not sold on the bat.

Rays did very very well there as well. The run of random questionable picks in the mid round could leave some intriguing names floating into the supplemental.

What's the scale on that thing? If it's out of 100, how is that good?

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.
