The Pirates' first pick initially was No. 29, but they moved up seven spots after a number of teams sacrificed their top picks to sign free agents. The Bucs have, of course, become familiar with picking in this range, having selected Kevin Newman No. 19 overall last year and Cole Tucker at No. 24 the year before that.

In addition to the No. 22 pick, the Pirates also have pick No. 41 overall, the last selection in Comp Round A. (The last time they had a Comp Round A pick was in 2014, when they selected Connor Joe at No. 39 overall.) Their second-round pick will be No. 68 overall, and their third-round pick will be No. 105. Picks in each subsequent round will follow 30 picks after the previous one.
