i agree that he's great, but i don't think he's a top 5 draft pick any more as he has been in the past. there are just too many great of'ers that are coming into their prime right now.
It depends how you value OF's. Vlad took the "5-category fantasy player" label to a new level, separating him from guys like beltran/abreu. however, if you have a team that includes a category-monster like juan pierre, then you can argue that a pure power hitting OF like vernon wells or manny are just as valuable b/c you don't need one specific OF to cushion/contribute to every offensive category. I do still think that vlad is a top 5 pick, even if his SB's are going to decrease.
