MLB Draft 2011: Some Final Mock Drafts (Cleveland)

 Various final mock drafts from around the Web.

Jim Callis, Baseball America:  LHP Jed Bradley

Vince Caramela, The Hardball Times RHP Sonny Gray

 A lot of mocks have the Indians connected to both Gray and Jed Bradley of Georgia Tech. The plan has been to take a college arm in this spot. Frankie Piliere, in his recent mock draft, said sources are reporting an internal strife going on in Cleveland between those who favor Gray and those on the side of Bradley.

Looking at the available scouting reports, the major difference besides pitcher handedness is size. Gray stands at 5-foot-11, which has scouts questioning his ability to carry 200 innings. Bradley is 6-foot-4 and a solid 240 pounds and has the trimmings of a prototypical workhorse. Of course, size isn’t a guarantee, but Gray’s reputation as a max-effort guy isn’t doing him any favors....

 Frankie Piliere, Scout.com: RHP Sonny Gray

ANALYSIS: Francisco Lindor has been a hot name for Cleveland, but the reality is that the Indians will probably stick to the plan and take a college arm. In this scenario, Sonny Gray is probably the best one available

 USA Today: LHP Jed Bradley

Comment: Indians have an eye for college pitchers, and Bradley needs little polish.

Community Draft, Minor League Ball: RHP Archie Bradley (HS)

Jonathan Mayo, MLB.com: RHP Archie Bradley (HS)

Bradley came on strong after a slow start and the Indians have always liked the big right-hander. If it doesn't work, they could consider a number of college arms.
