MLB.com projects a different first-round pick by the Astros

Keith Law
projected the Astros
to take Randal Grichuk from Lamar Consolidated with the 21st pick in next week's draft.

Well, he's not even in MLB.com's projected first round.

Who is Jonathan Mayo's projectino for the Astros?

Jared Mitchell, OF, Louisiana State University
There are varying opinions of Mitchell's upside as a hitter, but no one doubts his speed and athleticsm. A two-sport standout at LSU, there are plenty who believe his bat speed will turn into power and he'll develop into a center fielder with power who can steal bases once he's no longer playing football and can focus only on baseball.
