One of the most common requests I field throughout the year is asking where particular prospects from the current draft class rate against past years’ prospects. This can be a fun exercise, but it is also important for the readers. The top of the class tends to be where the biggest gaps are year to year, and it is not always evident where a player ranked No. 2 or No. 3 overall one year would place in other classes, which can change the perception of his value.
