How much does the, lack of input, in his early years have, on when a Player is selected in a Draft?. For example in a recent Progressive, I was drafting in, Tim McCarver wasn't drafted till the end. Tim's Rookie year was about 100 PA's and a .234 Average followed by an IR Year. After this, begiining in his 3rd year, Tim becomes very productive for some time. It seems like the 1 year of low productivity and 1 year on the shelf, really cost Tim in his draft ranking. Also, in the same Draft Matty Alou was a late draft pick. Matty was a low producer for 5 years before catching fire for a few years. It seems like his draft ranking was also severly affected by low years productivity.
