The Deepest Draft Classes Since 1981. (Part 2)

1997’s Top Pick, Not Much Else After Him.

PART 3.      Now that we’ve gone through the best overall draft classes, it’s time to go a little deeper.  Here are the worst overall draft classes:

Notable Observations:
(Here’s the rating system:   Each draft class that leads the league, during a given season, in number of top 50 players gets 5 points, the second and third place classes get 3 points, and the fourth and fifth place classes are given 1 point.  Remember, this study is attempting to find out the deepest draft classes, not the most top heavy. )
The 1997 and 2000 drafts were the worst of the past 30 years; they couldn’t muster one top 5 season between the two of them.  
’06, ’07, ’09, and ’10 are on this list, but probably don’t deserve to be there; at least for now.  These classes haven’t fully developed yet; more on that later.

The ’86 draft class did a lot better than I thought.  Before this study, I would have picked them to be the worst.

Here are two other interesting tables.
