I don't know in how much esteem this list is generally held. But, with Buzz of 3rdddegree.net putting out a preliminary draft list, and using the watch list as a basis for it, I thought I'd take a look at past lists. In 2002, getting on the watch list pretty much guaranteed that a player was going to be drafted. Here's the 16-player list: Code: Kevin Ara Sr. Harvard Ryan Cochrane Jr. Santa Clara Cesar Cuellar Sr. Connecticut Clint Dempsey Jr. Furman Ned Grabavoy Jr. Indiana Adolpho Gregorio Sr. UCLA Matt Haefner Sr. Pennsylvania William Hesmer Sr. Pennsylvania Sumed Ibrahim Sr. Maryland Antou Jallow Jr. Wisconsin-Milwaukee Guy Melamed Jr. Boston College Joseph Ngwenva Sr. Costal Carolina Abe Thompson Jr. Maryland David Wagenfuhr Sr. Creighton Jeremiah White Sr. Wake Forest Chris Wingert Sr. St. John's The only senior on the list that didn't get drafted was the mercurial Cesar Cuellar, that is, 9/10 of the seniors did get drafted, and generally very high. There were 50 seniors drafted in 2003, with an average position of 34.5; the 9 watch-list seniors averaged 21.9, and 7/9 were in the first half (Wagenfuhr, 32; Haefner, 52). Of the 6 underclassmen, three joined MLS this year, getting drafted at 6, 9, and 15. The other 3 look sure to get drafted come January. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any watch lists before 2003, so this is as post is as much a request for help as it is an attempt to inform. So, if anybody can find them, I'd appreciate it.
