Team Lehman had 2 of those with 18 round pick of Tanner Groves (E Washington) hitting for 35 and 20th round pick Kevin Obanor (Oral Roberts) connecting for 30 and Obanor will play a second game as Oral Roberts upset Purdue. Team Noffke's 8th round pick Buddy Boeheim (Syracuse) scored 30 in a win over San Diego State and Commissioner's Max Abmas (also from Oral Roberts) scored 30 in a winning effort.
Top 100 Draft Picks: In the 2019 draft, 18 draft picks selected prior to the 11th draft round (10 draft teams mean 100 draft picks through 10 rounds), were eliminated from the game after the first game played. That year Team Kremer lost the most players 5 while the Commish and Team Noffke went unscathed.
This year there were 24 draft selections that were out before seeing a 2nd game out of the first 110 draft picks for a greater than 20% that your pick didn't make it to a second game . Ken Kremer lost the most players 5 including picks from rounds 1,2,4,5 and 10. Team Trevino and Dave Eccles both survided the carnage by not losing any opening 10 rounds of pick selections. It really helps to have your draft picks move on especially your top 10 picks, but often that doesn't dictate where you'll finish in this draft game.
Standings after Game 1:
Overall through the first game played, Team Noffke has a narrow 15 point lead over Team Trevino.
