I don't want to speak for everyone else, but personally for me... this is completely because I feel like the 2B options in rounds 4-8 (Phillips, Weeks, Prado, Johnson, etc) let me hold off on my MI "commitment" until then. I like any of these guys, as opposed to the SS options in that range (Jeter, Ramirez, Reyes) all of whom I'm not really that comfortable with.
I feel like I'm at the level now, after a couple dozen mocks, where I can make that gear shift and go with a MI early and reshape my strategy on the fly... I just don't prefer to do that. The advantage that Hanley/Tulo give you over the rest of your league makes it worth taking that risk (if you have the chance)... I personally don't feel like Cano/Pedroia give me that much of an advantage to make that decision. I'd rather play it safe and easy and go CI/CI/OF with my first three picks then.
