Mark,
We are having a live draft here on the message board. You will be picking 2nd in odd rounds and 11th (2nd-to-last) in even rounds. As soon as Adam picks, you are up. The draft will be either 12 or 14 rounds and we'll announce that later on depending on how fast the draft is going. One of your picks must be a stadium, and then no one else can choose that stadium. Typically, stadiums are selected somewhat late in the draft (I don't think anyone has picked a stadium in the first 3 rounds and typically quite a bit later).

Does anyone remember about how fast these drafts run?

2-3 rounds per day if you’re real lucky

I don't understand passing. Assuming #1 passes and ends up picking 6th in first round, does he then get that spot for the entire draft. I prefer to keep things simple and not pass.

If someone passes they can jump in and make THAT pick only anytime afterwards. Otherwise they maintain their spots in serpentine . Example if one passes and takes fourth pick jumping in he will still have next pick at 24.

I don't understand passing.

I don't either. Maybe he wanted to trade the #1 spot with someone?? Maybe Adam will clarify his intention...

Adam has been on the clock for 6 hours. The first couple rounds always run slower, but I'm not sure why the delay in this case. I'm guessing he was considering passing because he was undecided and didn't want to delay the draft.

Passing does not change your draft position. If you have the first pick in odd rounds and last pick in even rounds and you pass your first pick, watch picks 2-4, and then jump in to "fill-in" your first pick, then your next pick is still #24 and your pick after that is still #1 in round 3. So, there is no advantage in passing. However, because it is confusing, please don't pass unless it is really necessary to keep the draft moving. In past drafts we have sometimes sent proxies to players picking after you - this can keep the draft moving if you are away for a while.
