Comparison of Draft Talent: 2008 - 2012
Posted by Jon Shepherd
Each year there is often a comparison of how this year's draft class matches last year's or some other time before. Nick Faleris has provided me with a product from his draft notes comparing the players draft day grade versus each other. For instance, Tyler Matzek's 2009 ranking is based on what it was in June 2009, not what it is now in June 2012. Below are listed 50 prospects. The 2011 draft has the most with 15 players on the list while 2008 has 6. 2012 compares favorably with 2009's group. 2012 does not have the elite name like Strasburg, but it does have a pretty solid top 7.
