Here are the standard deviation for the top 12 players at
2b - $9.76
C - $8.64
1b - $6.99
SS - $11.14
3rd - with Pujols $10.28 without Pujols $5.42

Agreed - in the real world, differing opinions, projections and strategies (not to mention injuries, sleepers, slumps, poor projections and so on) enter into the equation, and make it hard to determine the impact draft strategy had on a team. You're right, perhaps it wasn't the best example; Pogo's numbers are a far clearer way of making the point.
Interesting that SS still has the highest standard deviation in spite of several shortstops performing better than expected this season. Definitely something to think about...
