2021 Draft Consensus Rankings

Time for my 4th annual draft consensus. Same purpose as before where the whole point is to familiarize myself with the various prospects and because I think the few other consensus formats out there are way to limited.

This year I had 25 sources with almost all of them being familiar to people like me who research prospects. I ended up with 113 players with all but two having at least multiple second round rankings. The two that didn't had a whole bunch of third round rankings so I kept them.

Numbers provided are the ranking, average ranking, high and low for each prospect. I have also done mode and median for the top 70 (after that it becomes rubbish). You will note that 115 is the "low" for many players. Basically most lists have between 85 and 150 players ranked with quite a few stopping at 100. If a player is not ranked by the 115th pick or end of those lists I just assign them all a number so as not to have extreme high numbers out there from the rankings that go much higher than 115. If a list ends at 85; everyone not in the list just gets 100. 95 they all get 110 and 100 they all get 115. Lists over 100 I stop at 115 so if not there; 115 it is. For the very few lists that are just one round or say top 50; I just use count the ones provided. Everyone not ranked gets no value and is just on fewer lists for their average total. Purpose for this is some of the later players may only be on 5-6-7 of the 25 lists so I don't want to inflate their total.

Anyway. Here is this years list and I hope it familiarize any readers with some of these guys they don't already know.
