Is The 2005 Draft The Best Ever?

Grant Brisbee investigates. 2005 is the year the Pirates got Andrew McCutchen. Justin Upton was the first overall pick, and the first round also featured Ryan Braun, Ryan Zimmerman, Troy Tulowitzki, Jay Bruce, Matt Garza, Colby Rasmus, and a bunch of other useful players. Brisbee thinks the key competition for 2005 is the 1985 draft, in which the Pirates picked Barry Bonds No. 6 overall.
