Over the past six weeks or so, we have been reviewing each of the Tribe's drafts year-by-year, starting with 2008, Brad Grant's first season as Director of Amateur Scouting.
Here is a summary of where each draft stands. The LGT poll results suggest that 2011 (and potentially also 2014) was a great draft, and that 2010 was a flop.
