I looked at the first 30 picks of every draft from 1965 to 2006 to see if there was a trend in WAR.
A couple of things I learned:
There is a trend; typically WAR decreases with each pick.
It was interesting to see 1 player drafted #1 overall twice only to have a negative WAR.
Mike Schmidt was the best #30 pick.
Kevin Brown has a higher WAR than Dave Winfield
Thoughts, questions, or issues?
