    Wasn't Ben McDonald a #1 pick in MLB? If so, how many schools have #1 picks in all three major sports?

    Wasn't Billy Cannon also a #1 pick in the NFL?

    UCLA would be Troy Aikman and either/both Kareem and Walton.

    I would think Webber was #1 in the NBA for Michigan.


    Syracuse should be there too. Derrick Coleman was #1 in basketball, Ernie Davis in football.

    Billy Cannon was picked #1 in the 1960 NFL draft.
    Ben Mcdonald was picked #1 in the 1989 MLB draft as well.
    So we have a #1 pick in three major sports.
