2024 Men's College World Series: Ranking MLB draft prospects

Last year's crop of prospects playing in Omaha was historic, just like the top of the 2023 MLB draft, in part because the overlap was complete. The Men's College World Series had 10 of the first 15 college players drafted last season, all in the first round. It also featured seven more players projected to go in the first round this year.

While this year's crop isn't quite as star-studded, it isn't far behind in overall talent with eight to 10 projected first rounders and at least two more expected for next year's draft (which will likely become four or five players in the end).

Below I rank all 34 of the players on this year's MCWS teams that I expect to go in the first three rounds when they are draft-eligible, regardless of class, and then identify the best prospect and potential top-five-round picks from each school. Remember, this ranking is purely on pro potential and draft stock, not potential College World Series impact, and prospects are 2024 draft-eligible unless noted otherwise.

Here are the top MLB draft prospects -- and potential major league stars of tomorrow -- in Omaha.
