The Board 2013: Volume III

Ball, Trey

First, I apologize for the lack of updates. In addition to my draft blog work with ESPN, I’m also the new sports editor of The Daily Record, a newspaper in Ellensburg, Washington. I’m very excited, but again, I’m very busy. I have four new writers who will start next week, and I’ll introduce them sometime next week (time permitting, sigh). My new goal with the new writers is to have content up at least five days a week, maybe six.

So, a lot has changed. Only two guys of the top 25 stayed in their respective positions, and I decided to add five more for this week, and will go up to 50 in April. We have one gigantic jumper, and we have one guy who come back from an injury and leapfrogged some players who were first pick candidates but two weeks ago.

I also will not promise you a chat, because I’ve done that twice and I feel awful that it never happened. Stupid life getting in the way. If you have any questions about the board though, feel free to shoot me an email and I’ll answer it as soon as possible.

Have at it!
