Best Player From Draft Class: Chipper Jones

We start things off with a home run No. 1 pick. In 1990, Atlanta selected a man named Larry Jones. Soon-to-be known as Chipper, Jones put together a Hall of Fame career with the Braves which included eight trips to the All-Star Game, a World Series win in 1995, and the NL MVP in ’99.

Jones finished his illustrious career with a .303 BA, 468 HR, and nearly 3,000 hits. Four other players drafted in the top-10 would become All-Stars — including Tony Clark, Mike Lieberthal, and Carl Everett — but Jones was clearly the best of them all.
