Drafted in the 1st round (8th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 1995 (signed for $892,500)
For two years, Helton routinely drove balls to the opposite field and demonstrated his power potential only in batting practice. But the former quarterback finally has gotten football out of his system, matured as a hitter and enjoyed the kind of season scouts have predicted for him all along. He has turned on balls consistently, making him one of the most coveted hitters in the draft. Helton has double appeal because he also rates highly as a pitcher, but he's a hitter first and foremost.
