Default What constitutes a successful draft?

What constitutes a successful draft? A team will draft 40+ players, if one player becomes a superstar, is that a good draft? If several players get into the show, albeit at with minimal to modest success, was it a good draft? Here's a useful link to look for yourself.

My first immpression, without much analysis, is that a team drafted and developed well if it can produce one major leaguer with 1500 at bats, or 100 appearances over a career, every year. Easier said than done.
