Rank positions or overall?

Postby RAmst23 » Mon Feb 14, 2005 7:41 pm

Is it more helpful for you to use just the rankings of each position or an overall? I don't have lotsa time on my hands (this stupid college thing apparently wants me to "read" and "write papers"), so is it more efficient to rank each position and just use that, or rank everyone in one long list and just keep it flexible as the draft goes on? Any replies greatly appreciated, Thanks!.

It's best to have both but if not i would rank each by position by top tier, middle tier, and bottom tier

I'd keep both handy on draft day..

I prefer to use mostly positional rankings though. It's all about getting a feel for the draft. There's only so much preparation you can do, then the rest relies on you working the draft when it's time.

I do an overall ranking for the first four rounds (56 in our 14-teamer) and try to stick to best available.
From that point on, however, I go strictly to a positional ranking broken into tiers of the type lbbaseball cited above.
