There are certainly players that if faced with taking I may cringe a little - like if I fail to get a top 3B and am starting at either Youkilis or Prado late in the draft. Going by position these are the guys I think will be ranked too high purely on speculation
C - Santana, McCann
1B - Teixeira, Howard, Trumbo
2B - Pedroia, Uggla, Zobrist (to a lesser extent Michael Young and Kendrick)
3B - Arod, Sandoval
SS - Tulo, Reyes
OF - Ellsbury, Bourn, Beltran, Stanton
Pitching I'll hold my opinions until the offseason, but one guy I never want to touch again is Johan Santana.

Of course, if the price is right, you would be foolish to pass on someone like Upton or Uggla. My point was to try to indentify those guys who, if they come to you at their average draft spot, your past experience of owning them over one or many seasons will make you say, "I think I'll pass and take the next guy on the list.
I know this an imperfect example, but here it goes anyway. According to ESPN live draft results for 2012, Justin Upton's ADP was 13.2. Next on the list was Prince Fielder at 13.5 and Evan Longoria at 14.1. In my next draft, for the 2013 season if I find myself at pick number 13 with Upton, Fielder and Longoria still on the board, I would almost certainly take Fielder or Longoria over Upton.
Now, if Upton is still there in the third round, yes, of course I am taking him.
I know it is an imperfect example, but it's the best I can do right now.
