I say 6 rounds is the max we go, At least 3 rounds is the least. I prefer 4/5

4-6 sounds about right to me.

I know the original exercise is one round, which is pretty lame. Six might be a bit much, but if everyone is down it's certainly doable. I'll throw my hat in the 3-5 ring and see where it goes. If we can get everyone checked in and have a consensus, I think we can open this puppy up at like 8 a.m. EST on Monday ;-D

I actually like the one round version. I understand why some think it is boring but it's about selecting one player that you want to build your franchise around regardless of any other players that you take. going 3-5 rds is turning this just into a big dynasty mock draft. Been there and done that. I'm less interested in that personally and prefer to focus on a single player.

I kind of agree, but I'm down for anything. Having three rounds does give us something close to a top 100 list.

The more I think about it, the more I know I can't vote for more than three. I do, however think one (while still plenty entertaining and informative) might be a little brief. After all, we're not trying to completely copy ESPN here, and when I remember looking at their last one I remember thinking it would be very interesting to see where some older stars would have gone if they went 1-2 rounds deeper. Therefore, I think my vote rests with 2-3 rounds with 3 being my absolute max ...

;-D This will be an interesting activity, but does anyone really want to just read a list of 90 - 180 players? I like the one round version the most, but if it's a few rounds then so be it. 4+ rounds is a bit much given the amount of people involved.

If we go one round, it might be valuable to have people write a sentence or two about why they chose the player. At least it would all look like more than just a standard dynasty keeper list.
