Scott Kazmir In The Sixth Round?

Scott Kazmir is being drafted 12th among starters, in the sixth round on average.  I have Kazmir posting a 3.70 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 185 Ks in 170 or so innings.  There are definitely more than eleven starters I would take before Kazmir.

Kazmir missed April with an elbow strain, and he was mediocre-to-bad in the season's final three months.  His walks continue to damage his WHIP, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him miss more time due to injury or post an ERA over 4.00 in 2009.  There is no way I would take a player this risky in the sixth round.  The latest you'll see him drafted is the ninth round, but even then he wouldn't be my top choice among starters.
