Elias probably would have went underslot for a guy who had an advanced bat.  lol

Nationals president of baseball operations Mike Rizzo has already prioritized some offseason changes in how the Nats scout and develop their players, due to a lack of recent help in the minor league pipeline.  The draft is the most glaring example of this issue, as MASNsports.com’s Mark Zuckerman notes that Anthony Rendon (picked sixth overall in 2011) is the last Washington draft pick taken in any round to generate more than 1.0 WAR for the team.

Shocking that the great Nats had no one since Rendon drafted in 2011 make for than 1.0 WAR for the Nats.  The article mentioned some of the Nats trades.  That makes the O's of the early 2000's sound competent.  Obviously right before that, Strasburg, Harper and Rendon were huge successes. 

Nats “failure”. They got a ring in 2019.

That’s not the point of the thread.   The point is, they haven’t drafted very well over the last 10 drafts.   Now, a few things have to be said about that:

1.   They’ve been drafting near the bottom of the first round for most of that time.

2.  It’s.too early to judge their drafts over the last 4-5 years or so.   For example, we think Orioles have drafted pretty well in that time (Hall, Rodriguez, Rutschman, Henderson, Westburg and others) but almost none of their high profile picks have reached the majors yet
