Are the players in the season mode draft real?

Nope. Just generated names I believe.

Are they the same characters or do they just have the same names?

probably the same names, haven't paid much attention to the stats.
They DO seem to have the same overall "scrub" stats except for a few RARE incidents where you get a pitcher with A control and B stamina, or a rookie catcher who rivals Mauer.
They're mostly the scrub team or world gatherings people.

I don't think it generates many different names - every year there is a Pettyjohn and Lorraine in the draft.

I've complained a lot before - but I think that the success mode college players should be in the draft - like Spider, Alvin, Patrick, Jet, Zero, etc. Aren't they supposed to be MLB-ready college players?

They seem so good in success mode, but when looking at their stats, none are any better than B's - most are E's and D's. I think they just look a lot better because everyone else sucks. It's a relief to play Season Mode when guys actually have *visible* contact sweet spots. But still the guys would be better than everyone else I draft - granted, the 32nd pick shouldn't net anything spectacular. A little tangent - previous 32nd picks in MLB include: Nick Noonan, Pedro Beato, Chaz Roe - they don't seem that good. 42nd picks are better - Clay Bucholz, 41st Joba Chamberlain.
