Gareth Morgan was selected as the top Canadian in this years draft class. This came as no surprise. What did come as a surprise was how Bob Elliott predicted Morgan’s selection by the Mariners early on in the draft on his Live Blog.

The following are a selection of scouting and interview videos from events Morgan attended in the past few years while building towards Thursday nights selection.
