About the same as Longoria and Braun. He's capable of more, judging by the outburst in September, but he's also capable of a lot less, judging by the other 4 months he was healthy.

Guys like Jeter, Rollins, Andrus, and even Tulowitzki are going way too early and much better hitters are being passed on. I'll settle for a small profit from a bland SS like Tejada or Uribe if it means I don't have to reach to get a better one.

I don't believe in position scarcity early in drafts, and he's the safest bet to put up the biggest numbers.

If you want steals then go with Crawford, if you want a SS then go with Tulo, if you want the best hitter then go with Votto or Braun and finally if you want a 3Bman that will almost match Votto/Braun then go with Longoria/Wright.
I picked Tulo here but rather unconvincingly since it's pretty much a draw imo. I do think positional scarcity should be a factor and I outlined a case that can be made for it in the voting for the third spot. And the case gets better when compared vs Votto/Braun.
