My mistake on the labeling. As JP1717 points out, these aren’t all first-round picks the first picks of that year’s draft. Some are in the supplemental and such, so remember these aren’t all first round picks, but the first pick the Mariners made that year.

Just for a reference, here are the first picks of the Mariners in the past. Some are good, Junior and Alex Rodriguez and Adam Jones, some were not good at the time like Michael Garciaparra, and some never panned out like Ryan Anderson (pictued above) and Patrick Lennon.

Take a look for yourself.
