After all the scouting reports, evaluations and mock drafts, the 2012 Major League Baseball draft is finally upon us.
This year's class doesn't have that one elite player—like 2009 with Stephen Strasburg and 2010 with Bryce Harper—or nearly as much depth as last year's class, which had no less than six players worthy of the No. 1 overall selection.
Still, there are a few names that have emerged from the shadows to separate themselves from the pack.
Even if this draft doesn't look great on the surface, there are always going to be a few stars who make the class look a lot better than originally thought.
We are here to break down the entire first round—all 31 picks—and provide analysis and grades for each selection.
