Well, with Phillips, Kinsler, Pedroia, Roberts, Cano, Uggla, Ramirez, DeRosa, Aviles and Polanco (depending on team needs) I don't know that the position scarcity argument is as severe as its been in recent years. Having said that, I wouldn't let him pass me by if I was drafting towards the end of the 1st round.
I take position scarcity into account somewhat the early rounds but he's still putting up elite numbers and thats the reason most people drafted him in the 1st round. Positional scarcity in those early rounds only comes into play when you have a group of folks you think will put up similar numbers.
I think he'll be a mid-late 1st rounder again. Per usual. Give him 4-11, depending on league settings and preferences.
