Keepers and Draft Order

My league is going into our 2nd year as a keeper league (1st year to select keepers). We have it set that we select our draft position based on our final standings (ie. Winner of the consolation bracket gets to choose their draft position first, 2nd place of consolation bracket gets to choose their draft position second, etc. and winner of the championship bracket gets whatever draft position is remaining).

  1. When is an appropriate deadline for keepers selection? Before or after the NFL draft?

  2. Should we choose our keepers first or pick our draft position first?

Thanks FootClan!

I would think draft position first.

In my keeper league I have been doing for 5 yrs, we set keepers a day or two before the draft and we draft during the NFL preseason.
