This is an old recurring story for some of you.
I couldn't make the draft for an NFL.com league I joined on a lark. I set up the top 30 or so picks, assuming that I'd have time to get back in and fill out another 60 or so today. That didn't happen.
Luckily I was the first pick in a 12 person league, so my roster starts with LT2, LaMont Jordan, and Chad Johnson. Then it starts getting weird. Yes folks, I took Bulger over FWP or JLewis. I have Ron Dayne. I have Vince Young.
If you thought you could squeak by with auto-draft, kill yourself.
Luckily it's a BS league and I really did it for mock draft purposes (which obviously I failed to live up to). There were 3 people in there drafting live and the others were all auto-pilot. That means that in round 1, the following players were taken: Carson Palmer, Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Matt Hasselbeck. Round 2 McNabb, Westbrook, Eli Manning, and the Bills Defense all went before Steven Jackson, Edge, and Steve Smith.
Do not auto-draft if the results have any meaning to you (in terms of "what will my real league look like" or in terms of "I intend to play this team.") Because of the way 75% of the league drafted, I am absolutely certain that it's going to be ghosted by most of the teams, so none of this matters, but I found it interesting, and thought I'd mention it.
