Early draft predictions for the Leafs.

My apologies for such a short post, but despite the draft being nine weeks away, I want to hear who my fellow fans want to see the Leafs pick in the first round. Barring us making a miracle run to the Conference Finals, we're currently 21st in the draft and could move around depending on who wins. Do we keep the pick and draft someone? trade up? trade down? trade it for an established player?

Personally, I'd like to see the Leafs use it on Kerby Rychel. Won Bronze in 2012 U-18 tournament, is a 2-way Center, scored 40 goals in his each of his last two junior seasons, and is aggressive in front of the net. Front of the net presence is something I feel this team lacks at times, and at 6'1 200lbs I think he can fill that. I personally can't see players like Max Domi or Anthony Mantha falling to the early 20s and I'm not 100% sold on Bo Hovrat.

I'm interested in any opinion you have on who you would go for with our pick. Is there anyone you can see being a steal in the later rounds? We've only sent away our 4th rounder to Nashville, but are getting a 4th or 6th back from Anaheim.

Thank you for reading, and Go Leafs Go!
