The draft is fast approaching, and we just updated our annual draft preview with this year's draft order.
The page shows the:
**first three rounds of the draft,
**links to all previous selections in that round by selecting team,
**links to all of the overall picks at that slot,
**total WAR earned by players at that slot,
**the number who made the majors, and
**the five best players at that draft slot.
Invariably this tends to dampen fans' enthusiasm about the draft. Even picking first there are no sure things in the draft as our list points out. For example, the median career for the first overall pick has a career somewhere between Kris Benson's and Jeff King's.
