2016 State Draft Report: Nevada



CROP RATING
updated_state_rating_two_starNot up to par
Rating compares this year's group to what a state typically produces, not to other states
  When discussing baseball hotbeds, Nevada often gets overlooked. But the state has had at least one first or supplemental first round pick in every draft this decade. That streak will likely end this year, but there still is a solid amount of draftable talent between the high school and college ranks.
