Do you stick to a certain draft order no matter what?

Postby PapaPark » Mon Jun 25, 2007 2:31 pm

For an example:

RB
RB
WR
WR
RB/WR
WR/RB
QB

etc..

Or - do you follow the runs when they happen?

Nope....I never really have a set order before a draft. I usually intend on going RB/RB but beyond that I just evaluate who is there and draft accordingly.

I always have an idea of what I want to do going into the draft but you can't become a robot who follows an exact pattern no matter what because then you don't take what the draft gives you.

You can go in with a pattern in mind, but inflexibility is the key to a poor draft. You have to be able to adapt to the draft and go with what it's showing you. Draft "strategies" are just guesses on who's going to be available when. If your guess is wrong, isn't it in your best interest to change your strategy?

I agree with Matt and Treat 8-o

I plan on RB-RB but am flexible and try to get the best player at the best value

I try to do RB, RB, WR, WR, and after that it is up in the air.

You want to START a run, never follow one!

well to me.. starting a run usually means you're picking someone up too early

Gotta take the best player to fit your idea of your team. Flexibility is key.
