Angels and Dodgers Roster by the Draft

Myworld has been going back to the 2005 draft to the present to see what kind of rosters major league teams would have if they were reliant on only domestic players for their roster. Today we look at the Dodgers and Angels, who both have a better roster when you consider players they drafted late but did not sign. Both teams have drafted the same players on two occasions. The Dodgers have had some horrendous drafts when the only players who made a major league roster were players they did not sign.
