Brozdowski’s list differs quite a bit from MLB Pipeline’s Jim Callis, including the Top 5 selections.

Both analysts have Crow-Armstrong and Alcantara in the top two spots but where Brozdowski goes Wesneski-Brown-Wicks as his 3-4-5, Callis takes a different route with Davis ranked 3rd, Horton 4th and Wesneski 5th.
