Do I assign the keeper in the owners assigned slot, or the earliest slot possible in that round. For example, the owner has the 7th pick in round 4, but also traded and got another owners 3rd pick in round 4. The owner is keeping a player drafted in the 4th round. Which slot to assign that player to?
2.) An owner is keeping a player in round 8 but due to draft pick trading, has no 8th round pick. That keeper then gets pushed back to the 9th round correct? But, similar to the question above, what if that owner has two draft picks in the 9th round, which slot does that keeper get assigned to?

So team trades away 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th round picks in deals and then uses a 15th rounder to keep this player. Then the year after, they're using a 15th rounder for that player.

All the more reason to make it an auction-based league with a salary cap. Usually if you want to tie up a player, each extra year in the contract means extra salary in each year of the contract. So even if you were lucky enough to land Albert Pujols his rookie year for $1, you can't just lock him at that price, and the more years you lock, the more you have to pay each year.
My ever-so-slight bias in favor of going down the draft and not up came from what might happen if you wanted to keep a guy picked in the 1st round but traded away all your 1st round picks. Can you not keep him in that case? Or would you have to go to a second, or later pick?

In the first case, we use what round the player was originally drafted. So say last year Pujols was drafted in the 1st round, but the owner keeping him doesnt have a 1st round pick, so he is kept in the 2nd round. So the next year, he isn't considered a 2nd round pick, he keeps his original draft value.
Each year you keep a player, he moves up one round in draft value, so it is similar in your auction format where his value increases each year. We however made the mistake by not implementing a rule on the amount of years that you can keep a player, thus, theoretically, someone keeping MIke Trout this year in round 20 and it taking 20 years for him to reach 1st round value. This won't likely happen but still.
Do you guys think it is too late to implement a maximum amount of years a player could be kept?
