did they only complete 7 rounds? I like to do at least 15 so you can see where some of the sleeper picks are going. thanks for the post though!

No - thats all they released to the nonpaying public ;-D

Why would it matter if it was 12, 14, 15, or 16? All this is is another ranking essentially. Use it however you want, but I wouldnt completely ignore it because there were an odd number of teams. Most of the players were drafted close to where they should - much better than many"experts" drafts Ive seen so far.

Does anyone here know anything about the NFBC?

I think it makes a difference whether its 10, 12, or 15 teams. The more teams there are, the more important postition scarcity and steals become. It's hard enough filling out 2B in a 10-team league. Imagine 15 teams! Ditto for steals. A guy like Crawford could put you halfway towards winning the steals category all by himself. With 15 teams, there are just that many fewer basestealers available, making the good ones more valuable.

I think that's in part why guys like Crawford, Renteria, Soriano, and Ichiro went so high.

Beyond that, you'll need to go deeper into the draft overall to fill out all 15 teams, meaning that your skill in picking sleepers and back-of-the-order guys becomes more important.

I agree with what you are saying SA - completely. I was just reacting to JDD who was ready to write it off completely because of it. Im pretty sure that other than some minor tweaking like you already pointed out, the overall draft is solid when used to get a feel for rankings. You dont have the jaw dropping ridiculous picks that most drafts/rankings do.

one interesting note on this draft...it was initially slated to be a MOCK draft but around round 9 or 10 they decided to play it as a league
