U went from precidting Buster Posey going 1st overall to no even being in the Top 10?? And having Skipworth go before him? Nothing against Skipworth.

No way the Giants don't draft a position player, in a recent interview management admitted they've been focusing too much on pitching.

Posey has been really been hyped, I don't see the Giants passing on a good hitter particularly at a premium position like C.

And going from including him in the top 10 to leaving him off loses you credibility unless you can explain why, and you didn't.

From the looks of your two mock drafts, you should stop. Posey isn't going to fall out of the top ten unless an arm falls off.

The Giants would not pass on any of Alvarez, Smoak, Beckham, or Hosmer if they dropped to #5.

I think the 'Stros will take Shooter Hunt. They have a young catcher in J.R. Towles, they picked Max Sapp and don't forget they moved Koby Clemens to C this year. They need pitching.
