2016 State Draft Report: Nebraska

CROP RATING
updated_state_rating_three_star Solid, not spectacular
Rating compares this year’s group to what a state typically produces, not to other states

 

Number of players drafted in 2015: 6

For a state with a number of prominent colleges and that serves as the home of the College World Series, the draft rolls form Nebraska are usually sparser than one might expect.

And that makes this actually a very solid class for the state. Cole Stobbe has a chance to be the highest-drafted high school player from Nebraska this decade. Ryan Boldt and Nicky Lopez gives the state a few other top 10 round options as well.
