    Default 2056 Draft Discussion

    This year we will be using the VPI draft utility to conduct the draft.

    Cuervo has stocked the utility with the players and correct draft order. If you notice any errors, please let us know or transfer the picks yourself within the util (you can do this again!)

    The clock for the 2055 FOBL Draft will turn on Monday, July 6th at 9AM Eastern.

    The Draft Clock


    Based on the round in question each team shall have a maximum window in which to make their pick using the draft utility.

    Round 1: 4 hours
    Round 2: 3 hours
    Rounds 3: 2 hours
    Rounds 4-5: 1 hour

    The draft window will run from 9 AM EST to midnight EST. (time spent on the clock outside of these hours will not count against the allotment).

    IMPORTANT: The VPI clock has to be monitored and otto'd MANUALLY. So, if someone is over their time give one of the BoG or Draft Czar Doc a heads up. BPA may also be a little wonky, but you are encouraged to use it nonetheless (admin will check for this before making a pick). You are also advised to TURN ON EMAIL UPDATES to alert you when your pick is up.

    The usual draft class page is stocked: http://www.thefobl.com/draft/draftclass.php.

    Northampton is up with the #1 pick.

    I've set Chitown as the owner of UTI in the database, so he should have access to the VPI draft tool. Chitown - same credentials as for the forum.

    I am assuming YD actually picked for STC then?

    My bad, guys. I didn't realize the draft had already started. I'll be quicker on the draw in the future now that I know what's going on.

    well what do you know-I got my #1 guy at 1(4). This makes a good start to our relationship Chitown. As for the draft, Conley looks like the closest thing to an ace in this draft. The Gods know I need one (or 2 or 3)

    Pardon my noobishness, but why do the faces for most of the draft class make it look like they are in their 50s and 60s?

    Yeah, Reynolds shouldn't be having a gray-haired mustache at 20. Good pick, btw.

    Well I think the images should fix themselves whenever they are re-run. I don't know who exactly these guys were before, unfortunately.

    I would think so too - we can regenerate the images for the rookies before we upload the file, can't we?

    VIR went on the clock at 9 PM last night - they've got an hour this morning (until 10 AM).
