    Who gets to choose first in the supplemental draft?

    • Michael Chaney

      I don’t think there’s an order, per se…the way I understood it, it’s basically a silent auction where teams bid the pick they’d be willing to give up, and if two teams bid the same round then the previous year’s record is the tiebreaker.

      I forget where I saw that, and the supplemental draft isn’t really a big event so I never bothered to look it up more. So I might be wrong, but I think that’s how it is.
