After exploring the back of the Top 30, it is time to look at how the stock is trending for the Top 20 prospects in the system. This is not a reranking, and it does take into account any injuries that we present at the time of the original ranking. The Top 30 list can be found here.

Additionally feel free to submit a personal Top 30 in the comments.
I have avoided run-offs to this point but Jan Hernandez and Andrew Pullin cam in separated 64 to 62 with the next highest vote total at 15. So winner takes 27, loser 28 and we continue the normal voting on the last two spots.
