2016 State Draft Report: Dakotas (North and South Dakota)
|Rating compares this year's group to what a state typically produces, not to other states|
Number of players drafted in 2015: 5. Just two years ago, not one player was drafted from either North or South Dakota. This year the area will do much better than that. With two players in the #BA500, this is a banner year for the Dakotas, although as usually is the case, there won't be many players taken overall.
