At this point in the pre-draft process, every rumor brings increased uncertainty.
A week ago, it seemed like the pick was between Stott and Manoah, and that’s still the most likely outcome. However, if Bishop falls, he’s probably the best prospect available.
I think people are overlooking Missouri OF Kameron Misner as a realistic possibility as an under-slot sign if Bishop is off the board.
Farhan Zaidi notoriously loves toolsy players, and Misner has them all. He would be a stretch after a disappointing spring, but the Giants may be able to gain value back later in the draft if they cut a below-slot deal at No. 10 overall.
With all of that said, here are my final odds on who the Giants will select with the 10th overall pick:
- SS Bryson Stott: 20 percent
- RHP Alek Manoah: 20 percent
- OF Hunter Bishop: 20 percent
- OF Kameron Misner: 15 percent
- RHP Jackson Rutledge: 10 percent
- 3B Josh Jung: 5 percent
- RHP Matthew Allan: 3 percent
- 3B Keoni Cavaco: 2 percent
- RHP George Kirby: 1 percent
- IF Will Wilson: 1 percent
- C Shea Langeliers: 1 percent
- LHP Zack Thompson: 1 percent
- Chaos: 1 percent
