PHILS CHASE UTLEY WAS A RARE NO. 1 DRAFT PICK WHO MADE IT!

Says USA Today:

2000: Chase Utley, Phillies (No. 15)

Utley’s Hall of Fame candidacy might be derailed by less-than-optimal career totals, but there was a 10-year period (2005-14) when the Phillies’ second baseman was among the best players in baseball, perhaps only exceeded in total impact by Albert Pujols.

Runner-up: Adam Wainwright, Braves (No. 29).
