Recent Drafts in Hindsight: 2005

The drafts between 2005-2007, what would you change in the first 5 rounds...

I'll start with 2005 in this post:

Here's what the Braves did:

Joey Devine (1)

Beau Jones (1)

Yunel Escobar(2)

Jeff Lyman (2)

Jordan Schafer (3)

Michael Broadway (4)

Will Startup (5)

Here's my picks:

1st Round: Clay Buchholz- He was drafted one slot after Beau Jones and he already has a MLB no-hitter on his resume.

other notables available: Michael Bowden, Luke Hochevar, Travis Buck, Colby Rasmus

Supp 1st Round: Chase Headley: We would have our 3B of the future already in our system and may have also moved him to LF.

other notables available: Nolan Reimold, Garrett Olson

2nd Round: Yunel Escobar - turned out pretty good so far

2nd Round: Taylor Teagarden - a pretty good Catcher prospect in the Rangers system

3rd Round: I'll stick with Schafer thank you very much.

4th Round: German Duran, 2B - Wasn't taken until the 6th round by the Rangers.

5th Round: Steven Pearce, 1B - Good prospect in Pirates system.

Other notables taken later in draft: Austin Jackson (Yankees CF prospect), Jemile Weeks (recently drafted by Oakland), John Lannan (Nats pitcher), Justin Smoak (recent ly drafted by Rangers), Yonder Alonso (recently drafted by Reds)
