Last year, the San Diego Padres were without a first round pick. This year, they find themselves with the number eight overall selection and that creates a different task for scouting director Mark Conner and his staff. Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union Tribune spoke to Conner about the process and about who the Padres will be looking at.

Besides the No. 8 pick, the Padres will also pick at 24 and 25 in the first round, compensation picks for losing Justin Upton and Ian Kennedy. They have narrowed their list down to 15 guys that they are considering at that eight spot, and some of those 15 may even be there when they pick again just 16 spots later.
