Shadow Draft - Version 1 - Dennis' strategy

As part of my annual draft analysis I like to do a shadow draft.  That is, given who was available, I pick who I would have drafted.  This year, I wanted to add a little twist.  Here is the first of two shadow drafts, this one using my pre-draft strategy and one using the Indians' strategy. 

1st round -  Ty Hensley, RHP, HS Oklahoma  (BA Ranking - 23; I flip-flopped at the last minute hearing McCullers is a tough sign assuming Hensley will sign for slot)
2nd round - Adam Brett Walker, 1B, Jacksonville (Ranking- 58)
3rd round -  Mac Williamson, OF Wake Forest (Sr. 236)
4th round - Ty Buttrey RHP HS Charlotte (38)
