I'm taking over as Scouting Director, since Phiago can't make it on Sunday. And I really need some help!
I thought I'd start with a poll of some guys who might be available around pick number 20 in round 1. Also, maybe give me a list of your top 5.
I'll post a couple more questions tomorrow, with some guys we should be looking at in the next couple of rounds.

I'm not sure how this will work, but I changed the poll for a kind of runoff of the top 5 candidates. OK - that didn't work. Unsurprisingly, you can't change the poll. So I'll do a runoff below instead.
Update [2005-6-5 1:1:0 by acerimusdux]:
The draft starts at 1:00 PM CST (2:00 where I am here on the east coast.) Teams are limited to 2 minutes a pick, but it looks to me like it will take at least about a minute a pick. I'll be here for the whole thing, and I'll keep this thread open in a seperate window, so I can check on it in case anyone wants to make suggestions here during the draft. I'd guess things will be particularly interesting around 2:20-3:20 CST, as my guess is we'll have three picks in that time (probably within about a half hour). Thanks!
