Close call between Wright and Utley, but I'd take Wright. Not sure if he'll go 30-30 again, but Wright's improving, so should his power, and with Willie Randolph as a stickler for aggressive baserunning, I see Wright stealing 20 bases. Elite in my mind. I'd rather lock up with a top 3B first because aside from your top 5 3B crop, you have questions about the rest of the lot. I'd aim to get Cano, Kinsler, or Weeks in later rounds should Upton and Phillips not come around so that I'll have an adequate enough 2B that'll take care of what's lacking in position scarcity.

beautifly crafted post. Its pretty clear that the 3B pool falls off extremely hard. The only real "sleeper" that I can think of off the top of my head is alex gordon. While if I miss on utely I could see myself going upton, phillips, kinsler, or dare I say kendrick...
