I think the real drop-off comes after #12. The arbitrary classification in tiers after 10, 20 etc. prospects seems unnecessary and wrong to me.
No. There is a huge drop-off. You can argue after #8, if you want, but Fasth looks like the real deal after the year he had. But you now are dropping down to guys who are really fringe players or guys with huge boom/bust potentials.

I am not using any set tier to evaluate. We have 8 or 9 really good prospects. You start getting into low B level guys after 8 or 9 (I think Fasth is definitely a solid B level guy, which is why the drop off happens after him).
