Beckham

I'm in a keeper league that will be really shallow with 3b entering the draft (12 team, 5 keepers per team with Longoria, Wright, Sandoval, Zimmerman, Youk, Reynolds and A-Rod all being kept). I'm picking 12th in the first round (actual 6th round). Is this too early to draft Gordon Beckham for 3b. It would round out my infield with Pujols, Wieters, Kinsler and Rollins already on my team and would leave me with some much easier drafting (just looking for OF, Util, Bench) after the pick.

Is the last pick of the 6th round a decent time to take Beckham? Beckham over Aramis or Michael Young?

I see him going late-80s and you're looking to take him around the 72nd pick, so that's not too much of a reach. Go for it.
