The MLB amateur draft is one of the most exciting times of the season. Every year, a fresh crop of talented young players make their way to new teams. Expectations and hopes for an organization's youth are at a yearly high—and for good reason.
The 2010 MLB draft featured quite an impressive talent pool, including future superstars Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, Matt Harvey and Chris Sale. They all went in the first round and have enjoyed high levels of success early in their careers.
Aside from the obvious gem of the 2010 draft, Bryce Harper, the Nationals have yet to get much in return from the rest of their draft picks.
Of the five players drafted in the Nats' first five rounds, only Harper is active with the team, and only one seems to have a solid chance at breaking in with the team in the near future.
The following slideshow will cover where the Washington Nationals' top five picks from the 2010 MLB draft are now.
