The Colorado Rockies missed out on three really good players in the 2006 MLB Draft.
With the very next pick after the Colorado Rockies in the 2006 Draft, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays drafted third baseman Evan Longoria.
Evan Longoria, who is still playing, has spent 14 years in the majors. He has been a three-time All-Star, a three-time Glod Glove Award winner, a Silver Slugger Award, and the 2008 AL Rookie of the Year Award.
He also garnered MVP votes in six seasons, including two top 10 finishes. Currently, he has a career rWAR of 57.4. But even better than Longoria are two Hall of Fame pitchers.
With the 7th overall pick, the Los Angeles Dodgers drafted future Hall of Famer Clayton Kershaw.
Kershaw has spent 14 seasons in the majors with the Dodgers. He has won three Cy Young Awards (2011, 2013-2014), four other top five NL Cy Young finishes, and two more finishes in the top 10. He also won the 2014 NL MVP Award, has received eight All-Star Game selections, five NL ERA titles, and has a career rWAR of 71.9.
Another future Hall of Famer that came in the first round of the draft was Max Scherzer, who the D-Backs selected with the 11th overall pick.
Scherzer has also spent 14 years in the majors with eight All-Star Game selections, eight top five finishes in Cy Young voting, three Cy Young Award wins (2013, 2016-2017), and a career 67.1 rWAR.
Two future Rockies relievers in Daniel Bard and Adam Ottavino were both drafted in the first round of the 2006 Draft but neither compared to being able to draft Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer, or even Evan Longoria.
That alone makes this the worst draft in Rockies history but they still made some more awful picks later in the draft.
