When the Bruins make the second overall selection in next Friday's draft, it will be the highest they've selected since tabbing Joe Thornton first overall in 1998.
But high picks are not common for the New England teams. Here are their most recent top-three picks in their respective drafts:
Len Bias, No. 2 (1986)
Drew Bledsoe, No. 1 (1993)
Mike Garman, No. 3 (1967)
