i think the hype around longoria will have him picked higher than i am willing to snag him. same to an extent with kemp. i think hart is the "quietest" of the three, but i agree with the above poster; they will all be picked in the top 8 rounds. i'd bet even higher in keeper formats.

Thats not much of a stretch considering Hart was usually around round 5-6 this year and Kemp was around 8 this year already. Longoria was a rookie obviously so he was later but ALL of their stocks have risen this year.

I'd venture to say that all 3 would be no later than 6th round. I wouldn't be suprised if they were 4-5th rounders next year as long as they finish the year pretty much at the pace they have been at all year.

I'm with you, even with a bit of a drop off the rest of the season these guys will get hyped up around draft time.

My guess is all will go before the end of the 5th round.

I'll raise you a round and say the 4th.

Of those players listed, I think Longoria will be taken first then Kemp then Hart. Longoria/Kemp might be taken in the 3rd round.

I don't see it as a stretch to see either one of Hart, Longoria, or Kemp drafted in the 3rd round, early 4th at latest. We're seeing the kind of quality campaign out of Hart and Kemp as a 5-cat contributor that propelled Alex Rios up draft boards. With Braun no longer a 3B next year, I can see that bumping up Longoria's value to the point he could be drafted slightly ahead of A-Ram. Longoria's production has been fantastic, slightly above projection but it should be interesting that if he makes the slated early September return, if that wrist fracture affects him some immediately.

For Carlos Quentin, I can see him as a 3rd rounder, maybe even a 2nd for some at the pace he's on. Volquez's stock has drifted some and so, I'd anticipate instead of being on a 3rd round pace, he's more on pace to land as a 5th/6th rounder. Cliff Lee is probably going to be in between 5th and 6th round at latest as well.
