It's still early but who are some of the most overrated players or pitchers so far this year from the draft?

Easily Grady Sizemore.

He was getting drafted wayyyy to early left and right, like he's the next coming of Beltran.

Personally, the steals are there, but he doesn't really show 35+ home run power (at least not yet), the average isn't there and it's not like he's running away with the runs category either.

Give me Wells, Holliday or Carlos Lee over Sizemore anyday.

Ryan Howard. Twice as many strikeouts as hits so far and probably another 2-3 tonight after Lincecum gets to him.

Sizemore had 5 in April. If he has 5 in every month he'll win up with 30. I don't think 30/35 is that much of a reach.

That's like saying Hardy had 6-7 in April, and that 45+ isn't out of reach. The thing with Sizemore is that, unlike Howard or Pujols who possess the power to put up their numbers after a bad month, i personally think Sizemore isn't as talented as people claim him to be, i've seen him drafted before Beltran, Vlad and Crawford in some very competitive leagues just cause a lot of people were very high on him...no way i'd ever draft someone like Sizemore over any of those guys. He's just simply over-rated.
