After the big three (Rolen, Chavez and Glaus) there really isn't anyone who stands out with the exception of Blaylock and maybe ensberg. What has happened to this position? Is it wise to spend a top 4 round pick on one of these higher tier guys?
Do a search for the (numerous) threads on this topic.
Third base is the deepest position out there (considering that you only have to start one third baseman and 3 of).
If you don't get Rolen or Chavez, you are safe to wait until the end or your draft to select a third baseman. Blalock, Hinske, Ramirez, Koskie, Crede, Hillenbrand, Ensberg, Lowell, Tex, Glaus, Mueller and Cabrera are all fine starters and you may even do ok with Alfonzo, Randa Burroughs or Beltre.
