1. You do your rookie draft, and then pare down to 53 to start with, and then in the free agent draft you drop a player every time you pick a player up. This means that if you drop a guy, he goes into the pool for other players to pick up starting from that point forward.
2. You do your rookie draft, and then pare down to 53 to start with, and then drop as many more as you want, knowing that you'll then be able to draft free agents until you hit 53 again. (You can re-draft guys that you drop if you subsequently decide that they're better.)
I kind of like System #1 better, but there's a minor chance of grousing if I pick 22nd out of 24 and drop a QB that everyone wants, and the guy with the 23rd pick gets the first shot at him.
I think I would be a fan of #2.
I'd like to know who is available in the FA draft before I start making picks.
It seems like in the first scenario a player I would like to pick up could be exposed one pick after me every single round. That would suck from a game perspective.
