This is actually a very tough one to answer as there are really no wrong answers and it comes down to preference. I think in this case I would want to know the makeup of your roster and the scoring of your league in order to give the best answer.

Profar has a better bb/k then Machado

Profar or Machado. Really wouldn't consider a pitcher when impact hitters are around. Machado has better upside but still some questions on whether he can stick at the position. Profar's offensive upside is more limited but other than Hak-ju Lee, he's the next most likely to stick at SS.

If you have to take a pitcher I'd probably take Hultzen, he's in the best position to succeed. I really like Bundy's overall package but the Orioles' development staff hasn't exactly done well with pitching.

I'd personally stay away from Rendon, huge upside sure, but there's a reason 5 team skipped on him in the draft. Injury prone and didn't hit for power with the new college bat are both warning flags.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

Goo luck with that.
I had Turner last in the group by a lot.

Profar was my favorite.

Profar/Machado
Myers
Bauer/Taillon/Cole
Rendon
Arenado

Off the top of my head with very little research. A lot of good choices and if it were me Iwould try to move down.

Turner is a fine prospect but he's nowhere near the class of some of those other guys. So yeah, good luck with that. Rick Porcello 2.0 isn't exactly a far-fetched scenario there.

Something to consider that of all the guys listed, Turner was the only player to actually face MLB talent. So, his numbers and likely his perception has been slanted to the negative since he only had a so-so performance. Put Turner back in AA or AAA ball and his numbers would likely look quite steller.
