A suggestion for the next draft by the way, I know its common practice to have the champion make the first pick in the next draft but perhaps next time the champion could pick their place on the draft order instead I just say that because I think theres something of an advantage to being one of the middle picks. That's kinda the point. The purpose of giving the winner of the last draft the first pick is *not* to put them in a prime position to repeat again and again and again. It's really not (or, at least it shouldn't be as long as people make smart picks) a very advantageous position. Look at what happens in the NFL or the NBA. The champion of the previous year gets the very last pick in the draft. That sucks for them because those drafts don't do the whole reverse order that we do. Barring trades, they're stuck with the last pick every single round. Here, with the reverse draft order that's designed to be fair and balanced to everyone, you can't really handicap anyone. Giving the previous champ the first pick is about the closest we can come to it.
