2022 MLB Mock Draft: Ranking the Top 50 Prospects in the MLB Draft

The MLB Draft is usually a good measure of talent. However, drafts don't always go in order of potential and skill. Here are the top 50 prospects in the MLB Draft.

1. Druw Jones, OF, Wesleyan School (Suwanee, Ga.)

Andruw Jones’ son is currently the best player in the MLB Draft. He's probably a better defender than his dad. He's also a very good runner on the base paths. On the offensive end, he'll need to change his power-first approach, but overall, his ceiling is the highest.

2. Cam Collier, 3B, Chipola College

As a 17-year-old, in Junior College, he hit .333/.431/.525 against pitchers that were multiple years older than him. He could be another Kris Bryant or Nolan Arenado type of player.

3. Termarr Johnson, SS, Mays High (Atlanta)

Johnson is projected to be one of the best hitters in this year's draft class. He's able to spray the ball around and should be a guy that hits around .300 at the major league level. However, he'll eventually move to second base in the MLB.

4. Brooks Lee, SS, Cal Poly

At Cal Poly, Lee hit.367/.476/.633 line and struck out just 8% of the time for the Mustangs. He wound up at Cal Poly to play for his dad, otherwise, he would've been playing for much bigger schools. Anyway, there are injury concerns but Lee is easily one of the best hitters in the draft class.

5. Elijah Green, OF, IMG Academy

6. Jackson Holliday, SS, Stillwater (Okla.) High

Andruw Jones' son isn't the only one getting drafted in the top 10 this year. We've got Matt Holliday’s son along with Lou Collier's son. Holliday has a beautiful swing and has said to pput on some good muscle this offseason.

7. Kevin Parada, C, Georgia Tech

Parada led Division I with 23 homers, and walked more than he’s struck out. Offensive first catchers stick around in this league and that's what he's going to be.

8. Gavin Cross, OF, Virginia Tech

9. Jace Jung, 2B, Texas Tech

10. Sterlin Thompson, OF, Florida

11. Jordan Beck, OF, Tennessee

12. Zach Neto, SS, Campbell

If a team likes a hitter that has a great approach to the plate and rarely strikes out, Neto would be their guy.

13. Daniel Susac, C, Arizona

14. Dylan Lesko, RHP, Buford (Ga.) High

Lesko just had Tommy John surgery but he's still projected to be one of the best pitchers in this draft class. He's got all the tools to be dominant in the MLB.

15. Jett Williams, SS, Rockwall-Heath (Texas) High

Williams is only 5-8 but we've seen smaller batters become great major league hitters. He's got a lot of potential despite his height. 16. Brock Porter, RHP, St. Mary’s Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.)

Porter hits 97mph with his fastball and hasn't had any health setbacks. That's always a good sign at this stage.

17. Connor Prielipp, LHP, Alabama

18. Cole Young, SS, North Allegheny High (Wexford, Pa.)

19. Justin Crawford, OF, Bishop Gorman High (Las Vegas)

Remember Carl Crawford? His son will also likely be drafted in the first round along with the other three MLB sons. He's projected to be a better player than his dad with great speed, solid defense, and a bat that should fare well in the majors.

20. Brandon Barriera, LHP, American Heritage High (Plantation, Fla.)

21. Ian Ritchie Jr., RHP, Bainbridge High (Bainbridge Island, Wash.)

22. Drew Gilbert, OF, Tennessee

23. Jacob Berry, 3B, LSU

Berry improved a whole lot at LSU when it came to strikeouts, limiting strikeouts to under 9% at LSU this season. But he's not a great fielder. The DH suits him better. That could hurt his ability to get drafted higher.

24. Adam Mazur, RHP, Iowa

25. Walter Ford, RHP, Pace (Fla.) High

26. Jackson Ferris, LHP, IMG Academy

Ferris' command probably needs work but if he starts locating well, his curveball could be a chase pitch against other batters.

27. Justin Campbell, RHP, Oklahoma State.

28. Logan Tanner, C, Mississippi State

29. Chase Delauter, OF, James Madison

Delauter would probably be drafted higher if he didn't break his foot after 24 games. Scouts typically forget about what a player did to start the season and go into the draft with how they finished. But if you can land Delauter in the second round, it's a no-brainer.

30. Gabriel Hughes, RHP, Gonzaga

31. Tucker Toman, 3B, Hammond High (Columbia, SC)

32. Blade Tidwell, RHP, Tennessee

33. Mikey Romero, SS, Orange Lutheran High

34. Jacob Miller, RHP, Liberty Union High (Baltimore, Ohio)

35. Andrew Dutkanych IV, RHP, Brebeuf Jesuit Prep (Indianapolis)

36. Noah Schultz, LHP, Oswego (Ill.) East High

37. Jake Madden, RHP, Northwest Florida State College

38. Jonathan Cannon, RHP, Georgia

39. Trey Dombroski, LHP, Monmouth

40. Jud Fabian, OF, Florida

Fabian was drafted by Boston in the second round last season. He declined to sign and went to Florida for another season. He improved his swing, struck out less but still never hit .300.

41. Sonny DiChiara, 1B, Auburn

42. Brock Jones, OF, Stanford

Jones has the potential to be a top-10 pick. He finished Pac-12 play, hitting .346/.491/.765 but struck out 28 percent of the time. He's got the power to be effective in the big leagues but the strikeout rate will scare some scouts away.

43. Eric Brown, SS, Coastal Carolina

44. Kumar Rocker, RHP, No school

Rocker was drafted 10th overall by the Mets last year. He didn't meet the Mets' expectations when it came to his physical, so, therefore, Rocker went to the Frontier League. Whoever gets Rocker is getting a top-10 pick essentially.

45. Thomas Harrington, RHP, Campbell

46. Peyton Graham, SS, Oklahoma

47. Landon Sims, RHP, Mississippi State

48. Carson Whisenhunt, LHP, East Carolina

49. Peyton Pallette, RHP, Arkansas

50. Reggie Crawford, LHP, UConn
