wow, pretty touching story here, apparently a player for the University of Georgia was paralyzed earlier this year when he collided with friend and teammate Zach Cone. He has been paralyzed ever since and will likely never walk again.

The Rangers drafted Cone in the second round and then later drafted Johnathan Taylor in the 33rd round even though he will likely never walk again yet alone play.

Really classy move by the Rangers considering the kid was apparently a good player and likely would have made the big leagues yet alone get drafter.

ya 33rd round draft choices are normally highschoolers or underclassmen in college that stay in school so not a bad pick, they are normally wasted picks anyways, atleast they can help someone out
