MLB: Ranking the Top 5 Players from the 2007-2010 Drafts

The MLB draft is not like other professional sports drafts. The players generally don't have any substantial impact on their new teams for at least a year or two.

Since 1986, only seven players have skipped the minors entirely, the most recent being Mike Leake of the Cincinnati Reds in 2010.

The last five MLB drafts have turned out some incredibly impressive talent. Although some of these players are still in the minors, there are plenty who have made substantial careers for themselves already.

Because most players in the 2011 and 2012 drafts have barely played any professional baseball, this list will start at 2007 and work up to the 2010 draft.

Additionally, this list is based off the current Major League performance of players in each class. While I'll obviously factor in potential, players who have had little to no impact at the big league level will not make this list.

So, without further adieu, here are the top five players from each MLB draft between 2007 and 2010.
