I think we have 7 or 8 bench spots, but you'll want to check the league settings to be sure.  TE's can't be plugged in at the flex position.

I looked all over the site and settings - can't find the # of draft rounds.  I guess we'll find out tonight!

i will be in air on a plane at the draft time. i've set pre ranks and i'll check in after i land :)

Ugh - I could never draft that way.  Congrats on your 5 Tight ends.

lol yeah hope not :) i set up around the first 75 rankings so hopefully that will take care of most the important stuff. got about 4 hours to waste here in the airport, i just got unlucky with my flight time today :/ Good luck in the draft everyone! :) I hope i get the #1 pick :p

Just so I'm 100% clear, the draft is 8:30 Central time right?  9:30 eastern?

I won't be home until probably 8:00 central, so if it's actually 8:30 eastern I'll have to alter some plans...

Central is correct Rob.  A bit early on the west side, but late by the end for the east coasters. 

With respect to getting 5 TEs after filling out the starting positions - if you're crazy enough to slot that many TEs at that point in the rankings, you deserve what you get, right?

Anyone able to get into the draft room yet?  I know the order isn't set until 30 min before, but thought they would have the draft room available ahead of time.  Maybe they can't set it up until the order is set...

Not bad but you should have drafted Terrell Owens.

T.O. at #3 overall instead of Adrian Peterson?

You're kidding right?

Yes, he's kidding.  AP at #3 was a nice gift - I can't believe Brady went #2. 

I took a big gamble taking Moss at #5, since RBs dried up quick.  If he gets anywhere close to 75% of last year's numbers and any of my chancy RBs pan out, I should do well.  Old Cocky is in a similar position - not much for RBs, but pretty solid everywhere else.  I like Brent's team and whoever the Terrorist guys are.  Dressel's team would be a contender if this were 2006. 

Theo, your team was looking solid until you drafted Deshawn Jackson in the 4th round.

I think you might be underestimating his man love for T.O.

The same thing happened to me in my other league - I picked 5th and Peterson, Tomlinson, Addai, and Westbrook were all gone...I ended up with Moss over Jackson or Brady.

Lot of good teams out there - heck, the teams that were on autopick aren't too shabby either.

I haven't logged in to see if Scott has dropped the Packers D yet though... :)

Nope, Scott is still a traitor. 

Very interesting draft all around.  Lots of surprises and lots of folks not afraid to gamble and reach for certain guys.  Should be a very interesting year. 

That damn Brady pick confused the hell out of me.  Not saying it was bad, I just thought it was going to go LT/AP/BW and I'd end up with Addai.  I'd been thinking that since I logged in and was looking at bye weeks for Indy and the whole thing.  So I was set and ready for that and all of a sudden I had to decide between Westbrook and Addai.  That was tough for me.

If it's any consolation, your pick made me very happy.
