Default Mlb players that were drafted college seniors

My google doesnt work. Anyone know which mlb players were drafted as college seniors? Maybe overthe last 10 years or something. I'm just curious. I know they are org filler but I'm just wondering

Any college seniors who were starters and above replacement level? Any all star appearances by a college senior?

Its hard to find that stuff without doing the research. I'm not willing to do the research but most of the successful senior signs tend to be RPs. Senior signs are meant to fill out your minor league rosters. You hope guys are something more than org guys.

Again, using data from 2003-2010, the college seniors who were drafted made the majors at a rate of 31.3 percent and provided at least 5.0 WAR in their career at a rate of 7.1 percent. Now, some of those are the Stephen Strasburgs of the world, so I limited the sample to those picked in the sixth round or later. Still more than one in five (21.2 percent) made the majors and 5.6 percent provided five wins of value. I limited the sample to those who got bonuses of $20,000 or less, and still 26.1 percent made the majors and 4.5 percent got to five WAR. Those numbers look pretty good, even compared to sixth- and seventh-round picks. Chances are still good that the senior they draft won’t ever make a dent, but chances were like that in the old days.

Off the top of my head Justin Turner for one.

The last senior signs we took to make the majors are Chase Bradford, Danny Muno, Travis Taijeron, and Matt den Dekker. You can add Villines to that list pretty soon.

I think Mangum has a good chance of being a major leaguer. Wouldn't bet on the rest.
