Im going to have to disagree with number 4. The risk is just too great for top five. If jackson is the twins pick...keep him at catcher

Probably true, but the Mariners are legitimately considering him too.
I agree with you on Jackson. Jackson might too. Scott B will likely advise otherwise.

You keep him at catcher this summer and next year. By then you should have enough info on him about whether or not he will be a catcher and how much slower he would have to go.

The other alternative is the old move Mauer to 3B angle for a catcher. It's also been mentioned for Jackson and it would retain defensive value and probably move him along faster. I also have little confidence that Sano will remain at 3B for a long time.
