San Francisco Giants MLB Draft Results: Scouting Profiles for 2012 Picks
Buster Posey was the Giants' first round pick in 2008

The Giants front office has been lauded for its recent successes in the MLB draft, and with good reason.

GM Brian Sabean and his staff have wisely selected some of the cornerstones of the franchise through the draft. Though the Giants haven't had a top 3 selection since 1986, they have used their first round picks to grab top-tier players like Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Madison Bumgarner, and Buster Posey.

In addition, they have made some wise later round steals like Brian Wilson (24th Round), and Sergio Romo (28th Round).

However, for every great pick, there are at least two busts, and the Giants have had plenty of those as well. Kurt Ainsworth, Jason Grilli, and Tim Alderson come to mind as first round picks who never reached their potentials.

Will the Giants select the next Buster Posey or the next Tony Torcato in this year's draft? Be sure to check this article throughout the draft for a full recap and analysis of the Giants picks in 2012.
