Where you can find your 2008 draft class

Expanding on the previous post explaining where the 2009 draft class will be this season, let's take a gander at 2008:

So. 1 1/2 seasons removed from the draft, and Jason Castro will obviously be the first Heckster to make it to the majors, but maybe more impressive are the five other 2008 draftees to start the season at Corpus: Lyles, Steele, Shuck, Gaston, and Meszaros. Of the 32 who signed in 2008, nine have been released.
