With the first round of the NFL Draft complete, we’ll take a look back at some of the San Francisco Giants latest first round draft picks and how they’re doing now.

The NFL Draft and the MLB Draft are about as different as something in sports can be. When you draft a player in the first round in the NFL you expect an immediate impact.

However, in baseball you may not see your first round draft pick for four to five years. If they’re a college player there’s a chance you could see them in two years.

There have been cases recently where a college pitcher has come up the same year he was drafted, but that’s very rare.

Still, the baseball draft is just as exciting to me if you do your research. It’s harder to project high school players, but you still get an idea of their potential.

We’re still over a month away from the June draft for Major League Baseball where the San Francisco Giants have the 19th pick in the first round.

Trying to predict the NFL Draft is certainly a difficult task, but trying to predict the MLB Draft is near impossible.

The Giants didn’t have a first round pick last year, but they had two in 2015 so we’ll take a look at the last five.
