Timothy Beckham, considered to be an all-around five-tool player, was selected as the first pick in this year's First-Year player Draft. Beckham, out of Griffin High School, was ranked at the top of nearly every pre-draft report. The 6' 6", 188lbs shortstop adds yet another weapon for the Rays after seeing David Price flourish.

The following are the rest of the top 5:

Pedro Alvarez - Pirates

Eric Hosmer - Royals

Brian Matusz - Orioles

Gerald Posey - Giants

The Draft is being covered by ESPN2, as well as MLB.com
