The Rule 4 amateur draft -- the "June draft," as it's sometimes called -- has been around since 1965. So heading into today, there have been 43 drafts and 43 No. 1 draft picks.

Would you care to guess how many of those 43 picks were used to snag a future Hall of Famer?

Technically, the answer is zero. No current Hall of Famer was an overall No. 1 pick. But what about players likely to be in Cooperstown someday?
