Most Productive Astros Draftees, by Round

There's no reason to post this, other than that I thought it would be interesting. Even I don't know what I'll find. Here are the most successful Astros, drafted by the Astros, sorted by round (by bWAR). Let's get after it:

Note: Players denoted with a * did not acquire any WAR with the Astros. Players had to have signed with the Astros initially in order to be considered (hence the absence of Michael Bourn). 
Also: There were 96 Rounds of the 1990, 1991, and 1994 drafts. There were 98 Rounds in 1990 and 1994, and 99 Rounds in 1990. 

1st Round: Craig Biggio (1987), 65.1 bWAR
2nd Round: Hunter Pence (2004), 29.0 bWAR

99 rounds in 1990 and a strapping 25 year old me still couldn't get drafted.
