The Nats have the 16th pick? Who is likely to fall to them?

guys i like that could land there include:
Lance Mccullers-Ace upside but is a little undersized and some see him as a reliever
Gavin Cechini-HS shortstop looks like solid all around tools plus bloodlines
Joey Gallo-HS first baseman with MONSTER power.  looks like a young joey votto offensively
Matt Smoral-big lefty (6'8", 225 lbs) is in HS and seems like a Rizzo-type big arm
Marcus Stroman-i thought he was a reliever but he made BA's pre-season all american collegiate team as a starter.  According to BA an AL scout said that he has the best stuff in the class.  He is only 5'9" but could stay a starter, possibly. He's also a former nats draftee from '09 so maybe we still like him.

At this point a lot of the top HS guys could fall or guys we've never heard of could skyrocket.  It's really to early to tell, but it is fun to think about.
