The period of time between April and August is a dreadful, dull time for college sports bloggers. It's also a time where we at your favorite Mountaineers blog lose some valuable page views from you guys out there.
In an effort to keep the content interesting through these doldrums, we're going to try something different and potentially really fun. Four Smoking Musket contributors (myself, SmithFire13, _CBH_, and sbwvu1) will be undertaking this endeavor and will be drafting our teams in the traditional fantasy sports style of a Snake draft. We'll be picking four teams, 9 players on offense (offensive linemen are going to be hard to come by in something like this), 11 defenders, and two specialists.
It'll break down something like this:
Two Wide Receivers
One Tight End
Three Offensive Linemen (Tackle, Guard, Center)
Four Defensive Linemen (DE, DT)
Four Defensive Backs (CB, Safety)
After the completion of the draft, we'll open the voting for the readers to determine who built the best team in a tournament style setting, with two semi-finals and a final game. Ideally, I'd like to do a pick or more per day, giving us some content and a chance for all of us to reminisce on some of our favorite players of the past. Without further ado, I present the draft order for this thing, chosen completely at random.
