my first picks

In a 5x5 10 team roto keeper league. I have the 7th and then 14th picks coming up. Here are my current 5 keepers:
1B Votto
CI Mig Cabrera
OF Kemp
2B Kinsler
P Jimenez
Here is a list of current players available:
P Jared Weaver, Dan Haren, Roy Oswalt, Josh Johnson, Tommy Hanson, Chris Carpenter, Mat Latos, David Price
3B/CI Prado, Beltre, Aramis Ramirez
1B/CI Youkilis, Morales, Dunn
2B/MI Prado, Brandon Phillips, Weeks
SS/MI Rollins, Andrus, Drew
OF McCutchen, Suzuki, Werth, Victorino, Pence, Rios, Ethier, Bruce, BJ Upton

I have no intention of taking a closer this early, though they all are available. I'm thinking P and OF have the most value, though there isn't much value left at SS or MI. Who should I target in the first two rounds? Thanks for your advice!

I personally love Price and Youkilis, those two would be my priorities. If you can't get Price then get Johnson, if you can't get Youk then get McCutchen.

I think I would go hitter/pitcher. I would look to grab McCutchen, Youk and Bruce with the first pick. Then Price, JJ or Hanson with the next pick. If for some reason one of the first three hitters is still available with your 14th pick then I would grab them but I don't think they will make it that far.

3b is rather shallow I'd look at Youk or Beltre with your pick
and then an OF Rios or McCutchen

This best reflects my thoughts with Youkilis getting edge and JJ as a pitcher..... then I react from there. Good uck.

I would definitely target Youkilis first to solve your 3B, McCutchen if not available.
Due to only having Ubaldo I'd look SP with the 2nd...probably Price, JJ, then Hanson. If they are all gone go Beltre (assuming you missed on Youk). Going SP here would allow you to hold off for awhile IMO.

McCutchen won't last till pick 14. I doubt he makes it to pick 7.
3B is shallow, but why take a lesser player (Beltre), over better talent.

Thanks for all the feedback. I don't expect Youk or McCutchen to make it to me at the 7th pick. What about prado for 2b and 3b dual eligibility?
