I have it

Carlos Quentin
Stephen Drew
Chris Young
Conor Jackson

in that order.

Picking Quentin ahead of Drew is a tough call, since Drew may have more defensive value. But Quentin is proven at a higher level of play than Drew, and while Quentin is an OF and Drew a SS, everything I have heard and from seeing them play in person I think Quentin takes his defensive role more seriously and has better "intangibles," though of course that's impossible to quantify. But the bottom line is that I am slightly more confident that Quentin will live up to his overall potential.

They are both still outstanding prospects and both are in the overall Top Ten in all of baseball.
