here are the legit MLBs drafted in the first.. the last fifteen years worth..

8 	Oakland Raiders 	Rolando McClain 	MLB 	Alabama
10 	New England Patriots 	Jerod Mayo 	ILB 	Tennessee
11 	San Francisco 49ers 	Patrick Willis 	ILB 	Mississippi
25 	Carolina Panthers 	Jon Beason 	MLB 	Miami (Fla.)
12 	New York Jets 	Jonathan Vilma 	MLB 	Miami (Fla.)
23 	Oakland Raiders 	Napoleon Harris 	MLB 	Northwestern
9 	Chicago Bears 	Brian Urlacher 	MLB 	New Mexico
28 	New England Patriots 	Andy Katzenmoyer 	MLB 	Ohio State
31 	Denver Broncos 	Al Wilson 	MLB 	Tennessee
13 	Cincinnati Bengals 	Takeo Spikes 	ILB 	Auburn
Gives me an indication moving up in the first is DUMB.. average on that list was 17..

and you can probably count on one hand the number of Mikes that were worth a crap..
