I would say no to trading but would be willing to hear arguments as to why there should be. I can't imagine anyone drafting 3 players from a FA draft.

FA draft- yes
same-as-rookie order- yes
random- no, as thrifty said, "We should still be trying to make the worse teams better for parity. Or at least not hurting them."
trading in FA draft- yes.
1) nothing wrong with more options, even if they aren't exercised;
2) there are teams with few/no picks this year and next. They need to fill out their roster, and blowing priority slots to do so seems nonsensical/unfair.

I say let FA draft picks be trade able.

Mine are for sale. Taking offers on any of them. Looking for late round rookie picks/future rookie picks.

I think if were going to do it by same order as rookie draft it needs to be snake this time at least...usually with anything regarding the waiver it's opposite of the rookie draft order, so if the best teams are still at the end snake seems fair if were to do it.

If it's only 3 rounds at least that would be one round of inverse order instead of picking at the latter all 3 rounds.

And after FA draft we should have a set date for first come first serve FA until first game so priorities don't get jacked up.

I still think we should have a claim period before first come first serve, but it should be fairly soon after the FA date, that way most people shouldn't even need to use their WW priority.

Well, against every rookie principal I have... I took Stafford. Still not sure why other than dreams of Calvin and Stafford growing old together.

Next...
