Jim Calis rates the 2005 draft...

21

Don't really agree with the Red Sox being #1 overall. I'd take the Braves, Rockies and Diamondbacks drafts over them. But damn this seems like a great draft. 23. Giants Didn't have picks in first three rounds but uncovered super sleeper Sergio Romo (28). 6. Braves Yunel Escobar (2) is a quality shortstop, Tommy Hanson (22) has frontline upside. 5. Brewers Ryan Braun (1) became one of major's most devastating bats within two years. 4. Nationals Got an all-around star in Ryan Zimmerman (1), innings-eater in John Lannan (12). 3. Diamondbacks Justin Upton (1) a worthy No. 1 pick; also got Micah Owings (3), Greg Smith (6). 2. Rockies Colorado hit on just one big leaguer: Troy Tulowitzki (1), baseball's best shortstop. 1. Red Sox Jacoby Ellsbury (1), Clay Buchholz (1s), Jed Lowrie (1s) arrived before second round.
