MLB 1st Overall Draft Picks

In honor of the upcoming MLB Draft, name all of the top picks in history. Lots of stars and lots of busts.
Positions refer to COLLEGE positions, but not necessarily MLB positions
Good luck with 1966, 1991, and 2004 - they never made it to the Majors!
As of June 2014, NONE of these players have been inducted into the Hall of Fame
1978, 1980, and 2010 won Rookie of the Year awards.
