Draft Class

Post by The_Old_Bear » Wed Aug 08, 2018 1:27 am

So it takes a lot to get me excited about drafting for this league but this is a great draft class :shock:

Really? I feel this is a pretty average class. There is a good amount of 20s talent, but one of the weaker crops of 17-18 YOs I've seen in a while.

Let me run it through my "quick ranking" Excel spreadsheet and I'll let you know.

It would be interesting to see what this class turns out to be 20-25 seasons from now. Maybe I am wrong or looking for the wrong things.

There are five who project to HOF status, but only one of whom is a teenager.

Another six who project to All Star with half of them teenagers.

Maybe seven more who project to potential red letters, occasional All Star with full development/good training.

So at least a decent first round, someone for every team kind of draft, which is, indeed, better than most drafts. Old_Bear is right, it's a good class.

But yes, of the top 18 projected prospects, only 8 are teenagers. CC also appears to be right about this group (age-wise, anyway).



Both ways.

I see 15 all star caliber players in there. Somebody keep a thread of these guys. Might be the greatest class in league history!

I count maybe 8 or 9 possible All-Stars. 2-3 of them are possibly HOF players, maybe a few more depending on improvements.
