The 2011 draft, by all accounts, was a success for GM Alex Anthopoulos and Director of Amateur Scouting Andrew Tinnish. The Jays managed to sign 11 of their top 13 draft picks, and managed to sign three very tough signs in Dwight Smith Jr., Daniel Norris and Kevin Comer.
The Jays however did not sign first-round pick, Tyler Beede. As a result, the Jays will receive the 22nd overall selection in next year's draft as compensation, along with their regular first-round pick, which may be close to that 22nd pick.
Beede not signing didn't hurt the Jays feelings because in all honesty, the Jays are stacked at pitching. I can rhyme of 10 legitimate starters in the minors already, so Beede not signing isn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things.
In the end, the Jays signed 35 of their 55 draft picks, and like I said, only Beede out of the top 10 remained unsigned.
In this article, I'm going to take you through the top 12 players the Jays signed at this year's draft.
