    First Draft who to pick first?

    Tonight is my first draft, it is a keeper league and I will be picking first. My roster is as follows:

    Matt Kemp OF
    Jacoby Ellsbury OF
    Jay Bruce OF
    Hanley Ramirez SS
    Brandon Phillips 2B
    David Ortiz DH

    Clayton Kershap SP
    Jared Weaver SP
    Madison Bumgarner SP

    Almost all of the top 15 1B (one guy has Cabrera and Votto, yikes) same boat with catchers and 3B where some guys have multiple star players at same position. At this point im not going to get a good star 1B without a trade really, so im wondering at this point should I just try to draft the best players out there and try to make trades. The following players are who I am considering drafting first overall and are not previous keepers.

    Hunter Pence OF- I think that he is overall the best player left, although I have three awesome OF'S, the guy that has Votto and Cabrera has none and maybe i can make a big trade by drafting what he needs.

    Michael Morse or Eric Hosmer 1B- I need a 1B, but like I said there are two or three teams with multiple players at this position to trade.

    CJ Wilson SP- Maybe the highest profile pitcher left, dont know if I would keep him but for those lacking pitching could also be good trade bait.

    Craig Kimbrel and John Axford RP- need a guy at this position

    Others ive considered Alex Gordon, Yu Darvish, and Adam Wainwright.

    Ive been leaning towards Pence or Morse but what do you huys think??
