While a higher pick always nets you more options, there's plenty of talent to be had in the top 10 this year. If the Reds are looking at G. Beckham, Crow and Smoak on the board when they pick, then they really can't complain about being in a bad spot. Oddly the Reds never seem to be associated with G. Beckham even though you've got to figure he profiles as exactly what they're looking for. In fact they seem to be actively trying to tie themselves to anyone but the lesser Beckham (even complete reaches like Kelly and Wallace). That's got to be a disinformation campaign. My take is if Beckham's there, the Reds will trip over themselves on the way to hollering out his name.
