Which year produced the best class of No. 1 overall picks in the four major professional sports?
Sam Bradford (Rams), Taylor Hall (Oilers), Bryce Harper (Nationals) and John Wall (Wizards) are the newest No. 1 overall picks in the NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA, respectively. Considering Wall's minutes in summer league play and Bradford's snaps in the Rams' preseason opener represent basically the sum total of the group's pro experience to this point, we'll give them at least a year to prove what the class of 2010 has to offer.
