Looking like a big disaster for the Night Trains. 3 Undrafted in the back end. 3 Guys picked at the start of Day 3 in the 11th round, which might mean big bonus demands. And 4 guys drop to the late 20s/early 30s where signing is unlikely. That's half the draft. And it gets better: Is there enough moneys to sign Touki and Ti'Quan? Forbes has a 1.2MM bonus, denting the overslot by 200K.

I did have a couple fun ones though, I did pick Susnara with the intent of overslot, so we'll see if that can happen. Hunter Cole gets picked to the same team! I'm just 13 rounds early... doh. And I reached heavy for Norwood because I like him that much, he may require a overslot that the Cubs had the bank to pay. We'll see, that might work out OK for me.

I'm bummed I didn't go snag Jace Conrad - he went in the 13th. I liked that guy a lot as a sleeper.

I avoided HS guys for the most part, tried to play straight as a contrarian play. But it looks like I stumbled into 3 guys who might have those big demands. Deetz, Prigitano and English - I may only get one. If I can get them all, then I picked some pockets and did OK for myself.

It was a fun exercise. Drafting is hard as hell.
