Default Best Pitcher in Draft?

I am looking to load up on a pitcher in this year's Draft. As of right now I am leaning towards Kyle Zimmer or Kevin Gausman. Are there any pitchers that have autos that may be a sleeper? I've heard good things about Brian Johnson and Andrew Heany.

If you could tell me who you're collecting and why, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm looking for a player that could be starting by 2014.

Thank you!

The BA note is a bit misleading. A lot of that #2 ranking came from 1 guy not being healthy at the time of the draft. If healthy, Lucas Giolito is probably the best pitcher, if not best player in the draft this year. I wanted the Bucs to take him instead of Appel, but that unfortunately didn't happen. From the sounds of things at draft time, his injury didn't seem to be something that would hamper him long-term. We will see next spring.
