1- Each existing team can protect 3+1 from it's roster... these are untouchable.
2- The expansion teams will randomly draw numbers for the order of their selection in the expansion draft.
3- The expansion will snake in it's sequence (1-2, 2-1, 1-2, 2-1).
4- No existing team shall lose more than one player from the non-protected players in the expansion draft. I.E. once a player is selected from team A, then no more players can be selected from team A. The reaon being is that I want to keep the draft pool high for the teams that finished poorly in the league.
5- The expansion teams can not draft a Defense
6- The expansion teams must fufill the rookie requirement keeper rule.
7- FA players are available to be drafted.
8- The expansion teams will select 9th and 10th in the overall draft.
That is how we are doing it.
Ouch, Zimm, that is incredibly harsh. The way I see it, make it hard on the expansion team, but not impossible for like, four years to come. If they were stuck with those rules their top player would be David Boston (if they're lucky). Yikes. Do it like the NFL does.
Not really. Our league right now is only 8 teams. We only can keep 3 players. The plus one is a rookie. A rookie is anybody with less than three years of NFL exp. There will be players in the expansion draft like Holt, Chad Johnson, Eric Moulds, Martin, McNair, and guys like that. They won't have any real good RBs, but they won't have to draft guys like Boston.
