Top 31 Flavors of Ranger Draft Picks

Adam's recent tweets got me interested in the history of Rangers draft picks.   I was a little curious to see all the top picks over the history of the franchise.  Here are the 31 best Ranger Draft picks, sorted by Baseball-Reference WAR.   The cutoff I used was 10 Career WAR.

Edit: The table is now after the jump, to conserve front page space
