Being a top draft pick does not necessarily mean you will have instant success at the next level. You go from being a big fish in a small pond to a small fish in a massive ocean and for some players, that is too much to handle.
The expectations can loom large on a player's shoulders and they can fold under the pressure.
Early round draft picks also put huge dents in a team's payroll. Just ask the Washington Nationals, as they have had to fork over quite the pretty penny to sign Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper.
First-round draft picks are looked at as the cornerstone of a franchise. They are players that are envisioned as capable of turning a struggling franchise around and bring a new life to their team.
Is this in the cards for these young prospects? We will just have to wait and see.
