I have to confess that I almost never find feature stories written on draft picks worthwhile reads. They're usually formulaic and superficial.
That said, Andy McCullough's long feature on Mets' top pick Brandon Nimmo in The Star-Ledger is very much the exception to the rule. It is very much worth your time.
On a side note, I think McCullough's work is consistently top-notch. I don't have all of the time available I would wish to read about the Mets, so I'm a lot more discriminating on where I spend that time. While there are a couple of beat writers who seem to lean heavily on ginning up fake controversy, McCullough just writes good stuff.
