2017 State Draft Report: Ohio

CROP RATING
updated_state_rating_five_star Not up to par
Rating compares this year’s group to what a state typically produces, not to other states

It’s a down year around Ohio. The state has produced a number of first rounders in recent years including Eric Lauer (2016) and Ian Happ (2015), but this year the Buckeye State is unlikely to see anyone picked on day one of the draft.
