If you combined the last 2 draft classes together, how would a Top-5 look? I ask this question because I heard Keith Law on the radio and he said these were his top-5 prospects of the last 2 years, and I think this is the order...

1. Steven Strasburg (Washington Nationals)
2. Tim Beckham (Tampa Bay Rays)
3. Buster Posey (San Francisco Giants)
4. Dustin Ackley (Seattle Mariners)
5. Pedro Alvarez (Pittsbugh Pirates)

how fast/slow do #1 picks usually take to get on a MLB roster?

It depends. Most from college can make it in a year or two. High schoolers take a little more time. Example, david prive spent a year in the minors after college, and now is on the rays roster.
