I'd like to be the invisible guy with X-ray vision.
Oh wait, that wasn't one of the powers? Crap...
As much as being able to control people's thoughts might have short term appeal, there's only so much you can do with that without compromising your own morality. I suppose I could become an ace interrogator that always gets people to tell the truth (whether that truth implicates them or not) or become some kind of hostage or peace negotiator. However, so much other personal benefit would feel like cheating. Getting free stuff from people sounds great until someone loses their shirt on the deal. I'm pretty sure getting free rent would lead to my landlord not being able to pay the mortgage on the place. On the other hand, keeping the rent about where it is now and getting an extra percent or two raise might be nice. Overall, though, compelling someone to do something for me I didn't earn would make me feel a bit guilty.
So, I guess the sniper guy's coordination skills would be my best choice. If nothing else, I could likely avoid breaking my neck falling down the stairs after tripping over the dog. Further, I doubt I would feel guilty about using it in pursuit of a sports career since there is already plenty of cheating going on in sports, particularly in the form of steroid use. Further, the skill apparently doesn't prevent me from choking in a clutch situation or someone else having enough luck or skill to counter me.
I wouldn't want to be the angry strong guy. There's too much potential to lose my cool and hurt someone or damage something accidentally. No thanks.
The most disposable member of the team would definitely be Rain Man. His skills remind me too much of J.J.'s on "No Ordinary Family". He's only useful if someone is using an electronic device that transmits something. His skills are also the least plausible. Everyone else at least has some basic believability to them.
At least the girl who can enhance her senses can potentially track someone by sight or sound and can provide audio or visual surveillance by focusing in on someone nearby. The electronic stuff could easily be done with a good hacker.
