Which Utah Jazz draft class ranks the highest?

The Utah Jazz have always relied on the NBA draft as a primary method of adding quality players.

Playing in a small market, it has always been difficult to attract free agents to come to play in Utah. It seems that over the years there have not been many players who have made the Jazz their first destination.

While the Jazz have been active in making trades, at times, they have fared no better. Late in his career Derrick Harper put an end to a trade when he said, "You go play in Utah." It was obvious he did not want to be in Salt Lake City.

Orlando Magic center Rony Seikaly reacted similarly when he refused to play in Utah following a trade from Orlando. The Jazz were forced to take back Chris Morris and Greg Foster who had already said goodbye to the team.

For the Utah Jazz, the NBA draft has been very important for the health of the franchise. While they have not always picked the perfect player, they have made some great decisions with the positions that they have drafted in. 

The following slides outline the 10-best draft classes for the Utah Jazz.
