Should I use my number 1 waiver on Stephen Drew, Matt Kemp, or Brian McCann? I could use a potential stud shortstop, but Matt Kemp almost seems too good to pass up. Same potentially with McCann. I actually have an open roster spot so I would just have to burn my waiver.
I could use some stolen bases as well. Also, someone has offered me Michael Bourn for Felipe Lopez.
What do you guys think? Thanks in advance...

Boils down to needs and the make-up of your league. If your league is active and you think you can swing a trade, I'd claim Kemp, then trade one of your other OFs for either a C or MI. If you don't think you'll be able to make a trade then claim McCann.
PS) How are players this good being dropped in your league?
Drew has no business being considered with the likes of maccann and kemp available. Tough call between those 2 (neither of whom should ever ever ever be available) but I'd probably go for mccann in your situation.
I thnk Kemp and McCann both improve your team. I would put claims in on all three in this order: Kemp, McCann, Drew. I think Kemp would be your second best outfielder. If you are lucky maybe you get Kemp and Drew both.
