Don't get me wrong, the kid is awfully talented, but I hear talk of him being an early 2nd round pick. With the depth at third, I wouldn't go near him there as I see his season about where it was this year: .300 30 100, a great season no doubt, but more along the lines of 4th or 5th round numbers to me.
I agree... he's being overrated a lot IMO.. the 20 SB come into play though, and he's really a 5 cat stud. Problem is he's not a monster in any of the categories.
If he's being thought of as a 2nd rounder, which he generally is, and puts up .300 30 100 100 20 then he's being rated correctly. Yes, 3B is deep next year, but that doesn't mean you don't take the top hitters. Draft the best hitters you can in the first 4 or so rounds, and D Wright is a top hitter, if he indeed does perform at those projected stats.
