The Live Online and Autopick Drafts operate with a “snake” or "linear" drafting order for standard drafts. For auction drafts, the nomination order is always "linear". A "snake" drafting order means the team with the first overall pick selects, followed by the team with the second pick, third pick, and so on. At the end of the first round, the team that just drafted (with the last pick in the first round) will have the first pick in the second round, as the draft order reverses until the end of the second round sees the team that originally drafted first overall makes another pick. This process repeats until all teams have filled out their rosters. The snake draft order helps ensure fairly balanced teams - whether you are the first overall pick or the last, all teams will receive equal number of picks and will have advantages during various rounds of the draft. The draft order is reflected on the left side of the Live Draft application (Live Draft only) and will also be featured on your Draft Results page accessible from your League homepage after your draft is complete.
“It's unfortunate that the President decided to use his immense platform to make divisive and offensive statements about our players and the NFL,” Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement released Saturday. “We strongly believe that players are leaders in our communities and positive influences. They have achieved their positions through tremendous work and dedication and should be celebrated for their success and positive impact. We believe it is important to support any of our players who choose to peacefully express themselves with the hope of change for good. As Americans, we are fortunate to be able to speak openly and freely.”
