    OP is updated. Nelson is on the clock which officially starts tomorrow at 9am EST, though some leeway will be given to west coast posters in the early AM hours provided they haven't sassed me recently.

    No need to fuck this up for someone else. I'm already having anxiety about ruining this for ohhaithur since I have supreme bad luck when it comes to any sort sports betting, or really any gambling period. Tried blackjack this past weekend after my buddy sat there and won $50. As soon as I started dealer hit blackjack, 20, 20, blackjack, and 21. Par for the course.

    Nelson is on the clock and has 58 minute left to make a pick. If no pick is made by 12ET then skrouse can pick

    3 hours per pick for the first XI rounds, then the clock is reduced to 2 hours for the bench picks picks (Round 18) and 1 hour to round out the 23. The clock is enforced from 9amET to 10pm Monday through Friday. People can make their picks outside of that window but nobody will be skipped. No clock enforced over the weekend but we'll do our best to keep it moving.

    This CB run is something else.

    Last draft the first one off the board went 35th.

    We're at pick 42 now and have already had 8 taken.

    Edit: 9 taken. Forgot Godin.

    Mane, Werner, SMS, Godin were all on the short list of choices for that pick and all went right before. Slightly forced my hand.
