Year by Year Draft Capsules 1963 - 1984
All Time 1st Overall Draft Selections
Best Players Never Drafted
Infamous Draft Trades
I have completed my year by year draft capsule history through 1984. Unfortunately time will not allow me to complete much more, at least not for this year's draft. I had hoped to go up to around 1990, figuring history still is being written with any draft class more current than that.
The major reason I did not get those drafts done is a) I'm taking a break and going camping for a couple of days this week and b) as I've worked on each draft capsule I've gone through my files and hurriedly completed 35 new biographies for the website. Again, I had hope to have added even more, but I did not allow for enough time.
