One interesting Thing is that some top prospects slid a Little but almost no real top guy slid out of the first round. Teams seem to be more willing to take a signability risk. especially the Yankees and red sox took big risks with groome and rutherford. is signability less of an issue now?
or is it the supposedly "weak draft" that gave Teams more leverage because the top guys risk entering a better class next year if they don't sign? I'm suprised that Kyle lewis signed for just a Little over 3M despite being considered a top3 Talent by most.
of course not signing can go wrong (like with funkhouser who's stock fell after a mediocre Senior year after declining the dodgers (going from 35th pick to 115) but it seems like the top15 talents don't have that much leverage and often go well under Slot.
