Is it possible that Cruz is being undervalued again, following a 33 HR, 20 SB season in 462 ABs?  I think so.  I also feel that Carlos Lee has slipped too far.  McCutchen is a nice upside pick - I have him at .279-16-67-97-32 in 625 ABs, but I could see more.

Davis would need 550 ABs to get my projected 81 runs and 54 SBs.  Similarly, Pierre's ranking comes with a 625 AB projection, Borbon's 575 ABs.  Keep an eye on Bruce as a breakout candidate.  Coghlan, Garrett Jones, Hart, Gutierrez, and Ross all appear undervalued.  It's important to pay attention to those who are expected to steal double-digit bags and those who aren't.

On the overvalued side, Bay scares me in the 3rd round.  Ichiro in the 4th is also worrisome, if he stays below 30 SB.  Ibanez looks questionable as well.
