Yeah that pick was at least 2 rounds too early. Not a bad pick but you could have gotten him later.
You think it's an early pick for a deep, 12 team league?
I don't think that deep really comes into play when it's a 12 teamer. 12 team mixed leagues are basically the same, If your bench is bigger, that shouldn't affect how early a player goes. It will just add more players at the end that normally wouldn't be drafted. He went at 9.12 in my current draft. I would have probably waited until at least the 10th.
