It lists the top 10 programs of players drafted since 1999 by WAR and can be found below:

Most of the programs are either in baseball hotbeds (So Cal, South Florida, Atlanta) or SEC powerhouses (LSU, Arkansas).  The one outlier on this list is Mizzou who comes in at 5th with 121 WAR which is 13 WAR ahead of the 7th place Hogs.  Unlike the Hogs who have many players make an impact on the big leagues, about 110 WAR for Mizzou has come from two players - Ian Kinsler and Max Scherzer.  Also interesting to see that Long Beach State is essentially lapping the competition, but they have some pretty notable alumni especially in the mid 2000s.

Too bad Trout didn't go to Stony Brook or some other small school in the NE.  He would cause them to be number 1 by himself in a couple of years.

The fact that Long Beach State never went to Omaha with all that talent is crazy, and it tells you talent isn't everything.
