2016 State Draft Report: Maryland

Rating compares this year's group to what a state typically produces, not to other states
After seeing a record eight players drafted last season—and placing five of them in the BA500—the Terps have just righthander Mike Shawaryn among the top 500 draft-eligible players this season. "The Unicorn," as he has been nicknamed, is the Terps' all-time leader in strikeouts and wins. UMBC's Kevin LaChance puts the bat on the ball and has plus speed, and Joseph Burton is an off-the-bus type with above-average raw power. Shawaryn has a chance to be a Day One pick, which gives the Old Line State a boost, but the state class lacks the depth of previous years, when it included some projectable high school pitchers and solid performers at mid-major Division I programs.
