2011 MLB Mock Draft: The Star Each Projected First Round Pick Most Resembles

In the United States of America, and especially in the world of sports, there's nothing we love more than to compare.

You see it all through the NFL draft process. Cam Newton reminds so-and-so of Vince Young, while Tim Tebow compares nicely to Mike Alsott. 

The MLB draft is no different.

And while it's a lot tougher to project what any of the 1,500-plus picks are going to develop into long-term, that doesn't mean that there aren't decent comparisons to any current big-leaguers.

Last year's draft class was a great example.

No. 3 overall pick Manny Machado was touted as being the next Alex Rodriguez, while Jameson Taillon was widely compared to Josh Beckett, in both his upbringing (Texas) and his stuff (fire-baller).

This year's class is no exception.

It has comps to Tim Lincecum, Evan Longoria and even the most hyped draft prospect in Major League history...Stephen Strasburg.

So, let's get cracking...with another mock draft, complete with comparisons of each pick to a big-league star.
