The 2022 MLB draft is just days away, and it’s time for my third mock draft projecting the full 80-pick first day of this year’s event.

The draft will take place from July 17-19 in Los Angeles, and I’d estimate that later Friday and Saturday is when the final useful information will trickle out (day of buzz is useless misdirection), which will lead into a final Mock 3.1 here on Sunday morning. Right now, teams are finalizing plans and putting out feelers about expectations with agents, with numbers and more concrete plans left for the weekend.

This is the order in which I think the picks will come off the board, while my rankings (linked below) is the order in which I’d pick the players.
