Perfect Game out with its top college players for the 2020 draft - their top 3 is Austin Martin, Torkelson and Hancock.  Only the top10 are viewable, rest behind the paywall:

I'm looking forward to a more robust discussion of who the Orioles should select with their first pick this upcoming draft. Rutschman was the pretty strong favorite for most of the run up this year, but there are at least 5-6 solid candidates for pick 1-2 currently and I think it could grow if some of the players progress like I think they will.

Well with 8 games to go, Tigers have virtually cemented their position as number one pick as they are on a 4 game losing streak and we are 4  1/2 games back.  We are in no danger of losing our number two slot as we are ahead of both Miami and Kansas City by a similar margin.   So, number two it looks like it will be.

Obviously you want the O's to pick the guy they think has the most talent and can be developed into the best guy, but there's also the leverage factor here. A chance to save here w/o much of a talent trade off would help down in the draft.

Does Martin remind anyone else of Dansby Swanson? 

Not really, aside from them both being infielders from Vanderbilt.  Looks to me like Martin has significantly more bat speed.  And in the infield, call me crazy, but he kind of moves like Jeter.

Why no Nick Gonzales (NM ST)?

How does Gonzales stack up to Madrigal In your opinion? The cliff notes version seems like less bat control but more raw pop, but I don’t know much about Gonzales defense.

For my money he's probably the best overall college hitter in the class and will be an average defender at 2b, long term.

Better bat than Torkelson, that's quite the endorsement, I like it.

This is a guy I think could shoot up, I just wonder what it would take for us to take a high school player. I just feel like Elias heavily leans towards college players because he can use models and get trackman data.

Not a 2nd overall potential guy, but an interesting under the radar arm with size, bloodlines, and stuff.
