Depending on whether or not Trout keeps his eligibility at all 3 spots, his value could be very high, even in the 8th round.
Think of it this way--there's no penalty for the round you keep them, and the round never raises. How long is the keep for? Because within 2-3 years, having Trout for the 8th with eligibility in all three OF spots is a pretty big deal. He could eventually be a first round pick (Upton, CarGo, etc.)
I don't know if Hosmer ever becomes something like that...I think he's great and all, I just think Trout's fantasy contribution ceiling is higher, that's all.
With all that said, Hosmer in the 22nd is a hell of a deal. I'm just making sure Trout gets his fair share of the discussion.
