Rate These College Hitters

How would you rate these college hitters in terms of what order you would draft them, and approximately where in the draft they would slot, i.e. #1 overall, top 5, top 10, first round, supplemental, etc. and why.

Pedro Alvarez, Vanderbilt, 3B, 6'2", 205 lbs, B-L, T-R.  .386/.463/.684 with 18 HR's.

Justin Smoak, South Carolina, 1B, 6'3", 200 lbs, B-S, T-L.  .315/.434/.631 with 22 HR's.

Yonder Alonso, Miami, 1B, 6'2", 210 lbs, B-L, T-R.  .376/.519/.705 with 18 HR's.

Brett Wallace, Arizona, 1B, 6'2", 205 lbs, B-L, T-R.  .423/.500/.719 with 16 HR's.

I would say Alvarez is clearly #1 because he can play 3B(has played SS in the past).  I believe Smoak has had some low BA's in wood bat leagues.  Do you worry about him hitting for high enough average in the pros?  Wallace also had 5 triples and 12 SB's so there is some athleticism there, but I've seen him ranked lower for some reason.
