Which ones are so full of good options you can afford to let the top picks go?

Disagree... to a point.
Depends on your league settings. 10-teamers are a cakewalk this season. 12-teamers with CI/MI/5xOF get pretty tight. Two-Catcher leagues are almost nauseating.
C - Top 4/5 (depending on where you like Santana) very high, then a HUGE wait to a nice deep pool of 10+ decent options.
1B/UT - Deep through the first 7 or so, then rather shallow. The second group of 10 is fairly even though.
2B - Steep dropoff after the first few, then ridiculously gradual from 5-15.
SS - Two ++ options, then a bunch of bad question marks after that. Tiers 2-4 could last 10 rounds. After that a wasteland.
3B - 5 good options, then 5 question marks, then no upside guys.
OF - A very nice, gradual slope from the top-tier guys all the way through the top-50 OF. Plenty of deep up-side guys to fill in 12x5xOF leagues. Still don't want to be caught without at least two top-25 OF guys though.
SP - SO. DEEP. One ace (top-15SP, down to around Weaver/Hamels), and then a bunch of high-upside young guys late in the draft is perfectly fine by me.
RP - Doesn't much matter. Get two safe closers, two risky ones, and keep your eyes/ears open through the season and you'll be fine.
In short, I'm not getting stuck without both my corner spots, one OF spot, and one C/MI spot filled after the first five rounds. In most mocks, I'm drafting only two pitchers through the first 12 rounds.
