zbrent, do you have a pick in the first round? What will you sort by?
I have two first round picks (#25, #33) and two supplemental round picks (#42, #59).
I sorted/ranked primarily on a combination of Current Ratings and Age, and bumped anyone who looked like a ML guy (with modest growth) up the list.
Next came the guys whose current ratings made it seem unlikely they'd be real ML players, but who had absurd projections (just like some do not project to grow at all, others project to grow 50+ points and cap at 100). I'm treating them like lottery tickets.
After that will come those from places with cool names (so two guys from Earth, TX get a bump), switch hitters, and people who are at least listed at harder defensive positions (so C/SS/CF) on the theory that it might be possible for a defensive specialist or speedster to slip a bit. This ordering really serves no useful purpose though.
After that, I just pick names I like.
