Selecting the right players in the MLB Draft can be nearly impossible.  

As opposed to a sport like basketball where a seven-foot frame and great athleticism can just about guarantee NBA success, baseball is a whole lot trickier. 

If you think that Michael Olowakandi, the No. 1 overall pick in the 1998 NBA draft, was a bust, for example, then what can you say about Bryan Bullington? Bullington was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2002 MLB Amateur draft, but he was just 1-9 in his major league career before being released by the Kansas City Royals last November. 

Since the first Major League Baseball Amateur Draft was held in 1965, there have been countless examples of athletes being drafted in the first round, only to spend their entire career in the minor leagues. However, at the same time, there have been numerous players selected anywhere between the ninth round and the 75th round that have gone on to have successful major league careers.
