Yahoo has him 21st overall and espn has him 17th overall (and the 9th most valuable hitter). That makes him easily worth the late first/early second round pick that many took him in 2005 keeper league drafts.

Well, I'd be shocked if Reyes or Figgins last 3-4 rounds past Crawford. Two rounds probably, tops. With Crawford, you'll get better production in 3 out of five categories (HR, RBI, and BA) and comparable production in the other two. Plus, you get considerable upside in the power department. I continue to believe Crawford is a 300-20 or even 315-25 hitter just waiting to happen. That's worth a few rounds to me.
At the end of the day, it's OVERALL value that matters. Right now, Crawford is the 20th most valuable player according to yahoo, and even better according to espn. I don't see how anyone can argue that's not worth a late first/early second, for a 23-year old player in a keeper league.
