Bob Dutton takes a look at how Deric Ladnier and the Royals front office is getting ready four months early for the June draft.

"The position players as a group this year, collegewise, are extremely weak," Ladnier said.

"The high school pitching crop is exceptionally good -- probably the best I've seen. And I think there are good-quality college arms."

I don't know a lot about any of these guys, but Matt Wieters seems to be the general consensus for  #2 overall pick. Andrew Brackman is sure to make entice some Royals fans, and I wouldn't totally overlook the high school kids.
