5. Aaron Lynch USF (Round 5)

I have heard many things about Lynch’s value, but most scouts tell me they view him as a round five or later prospect due to some suspect play and character issues. After his freshman year I would have expected him to be a first round pick and with his considerable upside/versatility I would love him as a day three selection.
